The Common Core of Data (CCD) is the primary database of the National Center on Education Statistics on elementary and secondary public education in the United States. CCD is a comprehensive, annual, national database of all elementary and secondary schools and school districts that contains data that are comparable across all states. The 50 states and the District of Columbia are included in the collection, as well as the outlying territories under U.S. jurisdiction. This CD-ROM contains 5 years of CCD data, beginning with school year 1993-1994 and going through 1997-1998 (school data for the last 4 years, and Agency and State data for all 5 years). This disc contains approximately 360,000 school records, more than 82,000 agency records, and 283 state records. Agency level finance data for fiscal years 1994 through 1996 have been merged with the appropriate agency nonfiscal records.

State nonfiscal and fiscal data have been merged into a single file. State-level fiscal data are available through fiscal year 1997. Installation instructions and information for searching the files and using the "Handbook" are included. TYPE OF SURVEY: Census; National Survey. POPULATION: Schools (360,000); Agencies; States.
