The Common Core of Data (CCD) is the primary database of the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) on elementary and secondary education in the United States. CCD is a comprehensive, annual, national statistical database of all elementary and secondary schools and school districts that contains data that are comparable across all 50 states and the District of Columbia, as well as outlying territories, the Department of Defense dependents schools, and the Bureau of Indian Affairs schools. This CD-ROM contains portions of 4 years of CCD data, beginning with school year 1996-19978 through 1999-2000 (for schools, last 3 years; for agencies, all 4 years; and for states, last 3 years). The disc contains approximately 300,000 school records, more than 65,000 agency records, and 177 state records.

Some agency fiscal and demographic data were obtained from the 1990 Census and F-33 survey of the Bureau of the Census. State nonfiscal and fiscal data have been merged into a single field.
