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 five files in this data collection, three of which are organized according to award category (Part 2: Sub-Baccalaureate Degrees, Part 3: Bachelor's Through Doctor's Degrees, and Part 4: First Professional Degrees). 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 5, CIP Codes and Titles, provides a detailed list of the Classification of Instructional Programs codes and their titles found in the data files.
