This report provides a resource of accurate, timely and comprehensive facts about higher education in Minnesota. It includes comparisons over time as well as national and peer institution comparisons to add context for the interpretation of the data. It is expected to be used by a number of stakeholder groups such as legislators, educators and researchers. The document is organized into three sections: (1) Preparing for and Entering College; (2) During College; and (3) Outcomes of College. A variety of data sources are utilized to cross check on the veracity of the data. The sources include data from national databases at the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Census Bureau as well as enrollment and financial aid databases at the Office of Higher Education. Except for the data submitted directly to the Office of Higher Education from postsecondary institutions, all raw data are collected online from third party websites. The sources are identified with each data presentation. Data used are the most recently available at the time of production. The Office of Higher Education organizes and designs templates of tables and graphs to enhance the understanding and interpretation of the findings. Producing a useful and high quality public resource is part of the mission of the Office of Higher Education. "Minnesota Measures" is in its sixth production and has seen improvements in the design, display and relevance of the data presented. This year there are five new indicators: (1) high school to college transitions; (2) trends in full-time enrollment; (3) enrollment of international students; (4) tuition reciprocity and employment; and (5) earnings by level of educational attainment. The following are appended: (1) Definitions and Terms Used in the Report; (2) Data Sources Used in the Report; (3) Enrollment at Minnesota Postsecondary Institutions--Fall 2012; (4) Minnesota Postsecondary Institutions: Greater Minnesota; and (5) Minnesota Postsecondary Institutions: Twin Cities Metro Area.
