Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS): Earned Degrees, 1994-1995 (ICPSR 2293)
This data collection contains information on degrees earned at a sample of postsecondary institutions in the United States. The survey collected data on the number of completions of academic, vocational, and continuing professional educational programs by award category. There are four files in the collection. Part 1, Institutional Characteristics, is a comprehensive file pertaining to the characteristics (i.e., religious affiliation, highest level of offering, enrollment by race/ethnicity, Carnegie classification, etc.) of all the institutions surveyed. Part 2, Postsecondary Completions: Awards/Degrees Conferred, contains the number of degrees and other awards granted by the institution in each field of study (CIP code), by level of award/degree, and by race/ethnicity and sex of recipient, with totals for full-time and part-time new and continuing students. Part 3, Clarifying Questions, contains responses to the two clarifying questions included in the survey: (1) number of double majors by level of degree and sex of recipient, and (2) number of awards/degrees by branches located in foreign countries, by level of award/degree, and by sex of recipient. Part 4, CIP Codes and Titles, provides a detailed list of the Classification of Instructional Programs codes and their titles found in the data files.
