Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS): Earned Degrees, 1987-1988 (ICPSR 4231)
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 three files in the collection. Part 1, Response Status Information, contains response status information to the completions survey for active institutions in the sample. 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 sex of recipient. Part 3, Postsecondary Completions by Major Discipline (Two-Digit CIP Codes), contains the number of degrees and other awards conferred by major discipline (two-digit CIP code), award level, race/ethnicity, and sex of recipient.
Data in this collection are available only to users at ICPSR member institutions. Please log in so we can determine if you are with a member institution and have access to these data files.
