National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) is a system of surveys designed to collect data from primary providers (institutions) of postsecondary education. It is the core postsecondary education data collection program of the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and has been designed to help NCES report full and complete statistics on the condition of postsecondary education in the United States. It is a single, comprehensive data collection system that encompasses all institutions and organizations that provide postsecondary education as their primary goal. It collects data in such areas as enrollment, program completions, faulty and staff, and financing. This disc, sixth in a series of IPEDS discs, contains one analysis file that includes variables extracted from the five IPEDS survey types covering the academic years 1991-92, 1992-93, 1993-94, 1994-95, and 1995-96. Data are combined into a single file with each record on the file representing a single institution. The analysis file contains the variables (nearly 1,500) considered to be the most useful to the user community. This CD-ROM also contains an ASCII file version of the analysis data for 1995-96, as well as the individual data files and documentation for the current collection year of the following IPEDS surveys: (1) Institutional Characteristics (1995-96); (2) Fall Enrollment (1995-96); (3) Completions (1994-95); (4) Finance (1994-95); and (5) Salaries and Tenure (1995-96). The "IPEDS Manual for Users" is located in the IPEDINFO directory of this disc, and the documentation for each specific file is in the respective subdirectory.
