Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS): Earned Degrees, 1995-1996 Version 1

DOI

This data collection contains information on degrees earned at a sample of postsecondary institutions in the United States. The survey collected data on the number of completions of academic, vocational, and continuing professional educational programs by award category. There are four files in the collection. Part 1, Institutional Characteristics, is a comprehensive file pertaining to the characteristics of all the institutions surveyed (i.e., religious affiliation, highest level of offering, enrollment by race/ethnicity, Carnegie classification, etc.). Part 2, Postsecondary Completions: Awards/Degrees Conferred, contains the number of degrees and other awards granted by the institution in each field of study (CIP code), by level of award/degree, and by race/ethnicity and sex of recipient, with totals for full-time and part-time new and continuing students. Part 3, Clarifying Questions, contains responses to the two clarifying questions included in the survey: (1) number of double majors by level of degree and sex of recipient, and (2) number of awards/degrees by branches located in foreign countries, by level of award/degree, and by sex of recipient. Part 4, CIP Codes and Titles, provides a detailed list of the Classification of Instructional Programs codes and their titles found in the data files. ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.. All postsecondary institutions in operation during 1995-1996 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. A national sample of 7,024 institutions was selected. These included 3,908 accredited institutions of higher education and 3,116 nonaccredited schools offering degrees or awards ranging from less than one year to post-master's certificates. 2006-01-18 File CB2680.ALL.PDF was removed from any previous datasets and flagged as a study-level file, so that it will accompany all downloads. Beginning in academic year 1995-1996, the data from the Consolidated Survey pertaining to earned degrees is incorporated into the Postsecondary Completions file (Part 2), making available race/ethnicity data by detailed Classification Instructional Program (CIP) codes.
