Compendium of National Data Sources on Higher Education.
Russell, Alene Bycer, Ed.; Rodriguez, Esther M., Ed.
This reference work is an updated guide to over 100 major national data sources related to higher education including surveys and databases, reports, statistical digests, and other means for making data available. It focuses on sources of data that are national in scope, updated and made available on a regular or periodic basis, and useful for policy analysis and development in relation to postsecondary education. Information on each source includes organization or agency name including acronyms, data source/title, description, data collected/reported, data availability, current data uses, publications, source/contact. The sources are grouped under five general topics and under each topic heading sources are listed alphabetically by organization. The five topics are (1) general references; (2) participation in postsecondary education; (3) finance and management; (4) faculty, staffing and salaries; and (5) physical facilities, libraries and assets. These sections are also marked with tabs. The compendium also includes an index and an appendix providing information on ordering materials from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).
