description:
The Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) series was designed to provide comprehensive information on various aspects of postsecondary education in the United States and its territories (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands) and Department of Defense schools outside the United States. This survey collects data on institutions of higher education and is designed to obtain a count, by field of study, of earned degree and other formal awards conferred. The data are required by agencies of the legislative and executive branches of government at the state and federal levels as well as accrediting agencies, professional organizations and a number of individual institutions interested in conducting comparative studies. Data are available for both public and private two-year and four-year institutions. The HEGIS Earned Degrees component for 1967-1968 offers data on the type and control of institution, and the total count, by field of study, of earned degrees and other formal awards conferred by each institution surveyed. Key data elements include sex of student, level of degree or award, Institution Name and Range code.
