description:
This collection offers data on basic characteristics of postsecondary institutions in the United States and covers institutional characteristics for 1995-1996. The data provide the basis for assigning each institution to a specific sector, which in turn determines the selection and distribution of other IPEDS surveys and the specific version of each survey appropriate to the institution. Sector is determined by an institution's control (public, private nonprofit, or private for-profit) and its highest level of offering (four-year or higher, at least two-year but less than four-year, or less than two-year certificate, diploma, degree, or other formal award). Key data elements in Part 1, Institutional Characteristics, include the name, address, and telephone number of the institution as well as information about levels of course offerings, calendar system, admissions requirements, student services, accreditation, modes of instruction, and institutional eligibility for student financial aid programs. Updated information on tuition/fees and room and board charges for the current academic year also is available. Part 2, Institutions with Continuous Calendar System, and Part 3, Institutions with Other Calendar System, are ASCII text files containing lists of institution ID numbers and the period or type of calendar system the institution used. The unit of analysis for all files is the postsecondary institution.
