Description
  • Abstract

    This data collection contains information on finances for a sample of postsecondary institutions in the United States and its outlying areas (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands) and Department of Defense schools outside 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 and Transfers, covers expenditures for instruction, research, and plant maintenance. Part E, Scholarships and Fellowship Expenditures, covers scholarships and fellowships.

Sampled Universe
All postsecondary institutions in operation in 1986-1987 in the United States, the District of Columbia, and its outlying areas (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands) and Department of Defense schools outside the United States.
Sampling
The Finance surveys (F1, F2, and F3) were mailed to 7,070 postsecondary institutions, 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 data in this file represent 3,604 of the 7,070 postsecondary education institutions. The subset of institutions represent those who are accredited by an agency recognized by the Secretary of Education.
Collection Mode
  • This data collection only covers Parts A, B, and E from the questionnaire. The other parts of the questionnaire (Parts C, D, F, G, H, I, J, and K) are not included in the data by the data producer due to concerns about the quality of the data.

    This survey is part of the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), which replaced the Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS). This is the first Finance survey to be conducted under IPEDS.
