Cross Walk between CIP and HEGIS Taxonomy [machine-readable data file].
National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
This data tape--NCES.HEGIS.TAXONOMY.FILE1981--represents a crosswalk between the old taxonomy of the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) and the newer taxonomy of the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP). The 838 records give the old taxonomy and 4-digit codes and the new taxonomy and 6-digit codes for the conventional academic subdivisions of knowledge and training and the technological and occupational curricula leading to associate degrees and other awards below the baccalaureate. The HEGIS surveys began in 1966. The documentation supporting the data tape lists the common tables giving the values and ranges of data elements in the HEGIS files, from that time, reclassified in the new taxonomy. (SLD)
