Part of the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) XVII series, this survey provides complete data on earned degrees for the nation, the states, and individual institutions, which are widely used by planners and researchers. The collection contains reported data for 3,161 institutions and imputed data for the remaining 36 institutions. Data are provided for professional degrees, baccalaureate and higher degrees, and subbaccalaureate degrees awarded. Additional data specify number of degrees granted by level of degree, institutional control and type, academic disciplines and specialty, student enrollment, and state. Demographic items specify sex and race of recipients.
