Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS), 1980-1981: Earned Degrees Version 1

DOI

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. Data are available for both public and private two-year and four-year institutions. The HEGIS Earned Degrees component for 1980-1981 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, presented for up to four record types for each institution (corresponding to level of degree or award), include sex of student and field of specialty. All postsecondary institutions in operation during 1980-1981 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. (1) The HEGIS Record Layout file (Part 2) is an Excel worksheet of record layouts for all components of the HEGIS survey, including the 1980-1981 Earned Degrees component. (2) Columns 155-170 are not used in this survey. (3) The 1980-1981 survey includes an additional category for level of degree for intermediate programs between the master's degree and the doctoral degree. This accounts for the change from three record types in previous years to four record types for 1980-1981. (4) This collection has not been processed by ICPSR staff. ICPSR is distributing the data and documentation for this collection in essentially the same form in which they were received. When appropriate, hardcopy documentation has been converted to machine-readable form and variables have been recoded to ensure respondents' anonymity. (5) The codebook and data collection instrument are provided 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. Information on how to obtain a copy of the Acrobat Reader is provided through the ICPSR Website on the Internet.
