Common Core of Data (CCD) Series

Investigator(s): U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics

The Common Core of Data (CCD) is the Department of Education's primary database on public elementary and secondary education in the United States. Comparable across all states, the CCD consists of four surveys completed annually by state education departments to report data about all United States public elementary and secondary schools, local education agencies, and state education agencies. Three categories of information are included: a general description of schools and school districts, including name, address, and phone number; data on students and staff, including demographics; and fiscal data, including revenues and current expenditures. CCD is the successor to the Elementary & Secondary Education General Information Survey (ELSEGIS) Series.

CCD Build a Table

You can now access all CCD datasets from 1995 to the most recent year available with a new 'Build a Table' tool that provides information on CCD data across time and at all levels of the public school universe: state, metropolitan area, county, district, and school.

Early release CCD data files are available at the NCES CCD Web site.
