Vocational Education [United States]: Crosswalk Between the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) and Handbook VI, 1981 (ICPSR 2375)

Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Education. National Center for Education Statistics


This file was designed to enable users to locate instructional programs by crosswalking from the previously used Handbook VI code listings to the new Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) code listings. The CIP is a taxonomic coding scheme of educational instructional programs that was originally developed by the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The CIP was intended to establish standard terminology to improve the communication and exchange of information with regard to instructional programs and to standardize record-keeping. Among the intended users of the CIP system, in addition to the federal government, are state governments, local governments, educational institutions, education research organizations, accrediting agencies, professional associations, and individual researchers.
