IPEDS Data Center

The National Center for Education Statistics’ (NCES) IPEDS Data Center provides higher education administrators, scholars, policy makers, and the general public with easy to access information on American postsecondary institutions. Users may access data for individual institutions, compare or rank institutions on specific variables, or create aggregated statistics (for example, by institutional sector). Data may be viewed online, printed, or downloaded for further analysis. Finally, Data Center sessions can be saved, allowing users to return and quickly edit or add to previous analyses.
