Description
  • Abstract

    The Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) 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. A component of the HEGIS XV survey package, this data collection furnishes finance data for 3,300 colleges and universities and their branches throughout the United States. The final edited data contains a sample of 3,189 institutions, of which 644 have been imputed. The data serve as a basis for making decisions concerning the extent of involvement of the nation in postsecondary education, as well as provide a perspective on current trends in education. Information is supplied on current funds revenues by source, current funds expenditures and mandatory transfers by functions, physical plant assets and indebtedness, details of endowment assets, changes in fund balances, tuition and fees, federal grants, local grants, and annuity additions and deductions.
