The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) collects institution-level data from postsecondary institutions in the United States (the 50 states and the District of Columbia) and other jurisdictions. For IPEDS, a postsecondary institution is defined as an organization that is open to the public and has as its primary mission the provision of postsecondary education. IPEDS defines postsecondary education as formal instructional programs with a curriculum designed primarily for students who are beyond the compulsory age for high school. This includes institutions that offer academic, vocational, and continuing professional education programs and excludes institutions that offer only avocational (leisure) and adult basic education programs. Due to budgetary constraints at the time, data contained in this Statistics in Brief were not imputed or otherwise adjusted for the purposes of reducing nonresponse bias when originally collected, and therefore, the data were not released to the public. The data have now been analyzed for nonresponse and appropriate imputations have been conducted. Appendices include: (1) Survey Methodology; and (2) Glossary of IPEDS Terms. (Contains 30 tables and 7 footnotes.)
