This report presents information from the Fall 2001 Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) Web-based data collection. Data were requested from more than 6,600 postsecondary institutions participating in the Title IV federal student aid programs. The tables in this publication present counts of institutions by selected institutional characteristics and the number of degrees and other formal awards conferred in the period July 1, 2000 through June 30, 2001 by the Title IV postsecondary institutions. Examination of the Title IV degree-granting institutions indicates that 41% were public institutions, 40% were private not-for-profit institutions, and 19% were private for-profit institutions. Of the non-degree-granting Title IV institutions located in the United States, 17% were public institutions, 12 % were private not-for-profit institutions, and 71% were private-for-profit institutions. In the 2000-2001 academic year, about 2.4 million degrees were awarded by Title IV degree-granting institutions in the United States. Of these, 51% were bachelor's degrees. A section of the report discusses the methodology by which these data were collected and analyzed. (Contains 1 figure and 42 tables.) (SLD)
