DOI

The data in this collection represent the universe of 9,383 postsecondary institutions in the United States and its outlying areas that were in operation in 1991. The Fall Enrollment survey was sent to the universe of accredited institutions and to all other institutions offering a bachelor's, master's, doctoral, or first professional degree. Part 1 (Institutional Characteristics Data) contains data on demographics, accreditation status, and level of offering. Part 2 (Enrollment Data by Race and Ethnicity) contains information on race/ethnicity, sex, and level of attendance. Part 3 (Age Categories and Level of Students Data) contains data on age categories and level of students. 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 in 1991 in the United States and its outlying areas. The data were collected from two sources: (1) the Fall Enrollment survey which was used to collect data from the universe of institutions accredited at the collegiate level and from all institutions not accredited at the collegiate level, but which offered a bachelor's, master's, doctoral, or first professional degree, and (2) the Consolidated survey, which was used to collect enrollment data from the remaining four-year, two-but-less-than-four-year, and public less-than-two-year institutions, and a sample of private less-than-two-year institutions. The enrollment data collected via the Consolidated survey were integrated with the fall enrollment survey data. 2006-01-18 File CB3738.ALL.PDF was removed from any previous datasets and flagged as a study-level file, so that it will accompany all downloads. The codebook and data collection instrument are provided by ICPSR as a Portable Document Format (PDF) file. The PDF file format was developed by Adobe Systems Incorporated and can be accessed using PDF reader software, such as the Adobe Acrobat Reader.
