Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) Series

Investigator(s): National Center for Education Statistics

The Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) Series, the predecessor to the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) Series, was designed to provide comprehensive information on various aspects of postsecondary education in the United States and its territories (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands) and Department of Defense schools outside the United States. Data are available for both public and private two-year and four-year institutions. There are eight components: Earned Degrees/Completions, Employees, Finance, Residence and Migration, Salaries, Fall Enrollment, Institutional Characteristics, and Libraries.

Earned Degrees/Completions

This component includes information, by sex and race, on the number of bachelors', masters', doctorates and first-professional degrees conferred in selected fields, and degrees and awards conferred based on less than four years of academic work beyond high school.

Employees

Data are provided for all institutions of higher education in the United States, with a focus on higher education employees. Specific information includes number of full- and part-time employees by manpower resource category, as well as salary, tenure, and fringe benefits of full-time instructional faculty by sex, academic rank, length of contract, and type of institutional unit.

Finance

This component includes current fund revenues by source, expenditures by function, land, buildings, equipment assets, balances and transactions on the physical plant, endowments, and changes in fund balance.

Residence and Migration

This component includes number of students in enrollment classifications by residence status (in-state/out-of-state/foreign), by home state, and by sex.

Salaries

This component focuses on compensation of full-time instructional faculty by sex, rank, and length of contract, and may also include tenure and fringe benefits of full-time instructional faculty and administrators. This component represents a compilation of two surveys used by NCES to collect salary data: "Employees in Higher Education," and "Salaries, Tenure, and Fringe Benefits of Full-Time Faculty." Users should refer to the note field in the relevant abstract for specific information on the content of each study.

Fall Enrollment

This component includes full-time, part-time, and full-time-equivalent enrollment by sex and by race, for undergraduate, graduate, un-classified, and first-professional degree students by field of study.

Institutional Characteristics

This component includes institution name, address, telephone number, congressional district, type of control, level of offerings, types of programs, accreditation, names of principal officers, and previous year enrollment.

Libraries

This component includes library resources, physical facilities, staffing patterns, salaries and wages, number of employees, level of educational attainment, current expenditures, and learning resource centers.
