Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS): Residence of First-Time Students, 1986 (ICPSR 2214)
This survey, conducted biannually, was designed to provide states with more complete information about the attendance of their residents in colleges and to examine migration patterns of students in and out of state. The data are presented on the state of residence of first-time students by level of enrollment, including freshmen and transfer students at the undergraduate level, first-professionals, and graduates.

Scope of Study
Universe: All postsecondary institutions in operation during fall 1986 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.
The codebook and data collection instruments 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.
Sample: The Residence survey was mailed out to 5,126 postsecondary institutions, of which 2,910 received the R1 survey (schools offering at least a four-year baccalaureate degree) and 2,216 received the R2 survey (public and non-profit schools offering at least a two-year degree/certificate). Private, for-profit two-year schools were not surveyed.
Extent of Processing: 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.
