Almost too Easy: A New Way to Wrangle IPEDS Data

August 27-27, 2019

2:00 pm ET 

Benchmarking your institution against peers and tracking metrics over time are common uses for IPEDS data, but those data downloads are not ideally formatted for analysis: wrangling the data often takes more time than visualizing them. This webinar will present the results of a multi-institution initiative to create a user-friendly method for compiling longitudinal IPEDS data files for custom sets of institutions. Participants will learn how to use our tool to quickly and easily turn IPEDS downloads into clean csv files ready for analysis.

As a result of this webinar, participants will:

  • Learn how to use an app developed by the presenters to compile IPEDS Data  
  • Learn how to turn IPEDS data into a useable format for analysis  


  • One registration may be used in a conference room setting to share with a group of colleagues.
  • Registration closes 30 minutes prior to the webinar.
  • Registered participants will have access to the recorded webinar 30 days after it concludes.
