  • Abstract

    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. Part 1, Institutional Characteristics, includes variables on control and level of institution, religious affiliation, highest level of offering, Carnegie classification, and state FIPS codes and abbreviations. Part 2, Current Funds Revenues by Source (Part A of the survey), provides each institution's current fund revenues by source (e.g., tuition and fees, government, gifts). Part 3, Current Funds Expenditures by Function (Part B), covers expenditures for instruction, research, and plant maintenance. Part 4, Clarifying Questions (Part C), contains information on total E & G revenues and expenditures to determine what is included/excluded from reported current fund expenditures. Part 5, Clarifying Question 5 (Part C5), lists excluded financial activities by subentities. Part 6, Utility Expenditures (Part D), reports all expenditures for utilities in the operation and maintenance of the plant, auxiliary enterprises, and independent operations, excluding expenditures for hospitals. Part 7, Scholarships and Fellowship Expenditures (Part E), covers scholarships, defined as grant-in-aid, trainee stipends, tuition and fee waivers, prizes to undergraduate students, and fellowships given to graduate students. Part 8, Expenditures for Library Acquisitions (Part F), covers costs involved in acquisition of library materials. Part 9, Indebtedness on Physical Plant (Part G), reports data on indebtedness liability against the physical plant, including auxiliary enterprises facilities as well as educational and general facilities, excluding debt issued and backed by the state government. Part 10, Details of Endowment Assets (Part H), provides information on the amounts of gross investments of endowment, term endowment, and funds functioning as endowment for the institution, and any of its foundations and other affiliated organizations. Part 11, Selected Funds Balances (Part I), includes both unrestricted and restricted funds balances. Part 12, Hospital Revenues (Part J), reports the revenues for, or generated by, major public service hospitals over which the institution has fiscal control (excluding medical schools). Part 13, Physical Plant Assets (Part K), reports the values of land, buildings, and equipment owned, rented, or used by the institution.
