The 2003 IPEDS tables have been added to the DAS (Data Analysis System) Tables Library. The tables provide state-level aggregate data on postsecondary institutions for all 50 states in areas including: percentage distribution of Title IV institutions; price information; degrees conferred; certificates conferred; employees, faculty, and graduate assistants; enrollment; financial aid; graduation and transfer rates; and revenue and expenses. IPEDS, the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System, is a single, comprehensive system designed to encompass all institutions and educational organizations whose primary purpose is to provide postsecondary education.

Deadline for proposals is May 31.
