Version V1

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 four files in this data collection. 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) of the institutions surveyed. Part 2 contains data for levels from less than one year through doctoral degrees. Part 3, First Professional Degrees, covers first professional degrees and includes racial/ethnic data at the detailed field of study (CIP code), unlike the other levels of degree. Part 4, CIP Codes and Titles, provides a detailed list of the Classification of Instructional Programs codes and their titles found in the data files.
