Version V1

This data collection contains information on finances for a sample of postsecondary institutions in the United States. The finance data, collected annually, are used for reporting and projecting capital outlays of two-year and four-year colleges and universities, trends in replacements of plant assets, and performance of endowment funds. The first part of the study, Institutional Characteristics, includes variables on control and level of institution, religious affiliation, highest level of offering, and state FIPS codes and abbreviations. Part A of the study, Current Funds Revenues by Source, provides each institution's current fund revenues by source (e.g., tuition and fees, government, gifts). Part B, Current Funds Expenditures by Function, covers expenditures for instruction, research, and plant maintenance. Part E, Scholarships and Fellowship Expenditures, covers scholarships and fellowships.

Each record on the data file represents one observation of a responding or imputed higher education institution for parts A, B, and E of the questionnaire. The other parts of the questionnaire (parts C, D, F, G, H, I, J, and K) are not included on the imputed file.

The Finance surveys (F1 and F2) were mailed to 3,626 postsecondary schools, representing the universe of all four-year, two-year public and private nonprofit, less-than-two-year public institutions, and a sample of two-year for-profit and less-than-two-year private institutions. The survey was also mailed to 3,451 other postsecondary education institutions (those not accredited by an agency recognized by the Secretary of Education). However, response rates did not meet NCES standards, and so these data are not included on this file.

All postsecondary institutions in operation in 1987-1988 in the United States, the District of Columbia, and outlying territories (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands) and Department of Defense schools outside the United States.
