Description
  • Abstract

    This data collection contains information on degrees earned at a sample of postsecondary institutions in the United States. There are three files in this data collection. Part 1, 1989-1990 Completions Survey, contains data on the number of completions of academic, vocational, and continuing professional educational programs by award category. Part 2, Institutional Characteristics, is a comprehensive file pertaining to the characteristics of the institutions surveyed (i.e., religious affiliation, highest level of offering, enrollment by race/ethnicity, Carnegie classification). Part 3, CIP Codes and Titles, provides a detailed list of the Classification of Instructional Programs codes and their titles found in the data files.
  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes..
