This data collection contains information on finances for a sample of postsecondary institutions in the United States. The finance data, collected annually, are used for reporting and projecting capital outlays of two-year and four-year colleges and universities, trends in replacements of plant assets, and performance of endowment funds. Variables include fund revenues by source, expenditures by function, land, buildings, equipment assets, balances and transactions on the physical plant, endowments, and changes in fund balance.
These data are available only to users at ICPSR member institutions. Because you are not logged in, we cannot verify that you will be able to download the data.
