The Tables Library contains tables that focus on various topics in postsecondary education. These topics include access to postsecondary education, persistence and attainment of a degree, financial aid, student demographics, and institutional characteristics.

The Library is organized into seven main sections. More than 200 tables created for policy analysts, Congress, associations, and others by the National Education Data Resource Center (NEDRC) are divided by topic in the NEDRC Tables section. Tables from NCES postsecondary analysis reports are organized by report name under the Analysis Reports Tables section. The E.D. TAB/First Look Tables section shows concise snapshot analyses of postsecondary education policy issues while the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) Compendium and States Tables sections provide more in-depth information across various subjects found in IPEDS. Links to all reports and tables based on the National Study of Postsecondary Faculty (NSOPF) are displayed in the NSOPF Tables section. The Web Tables section contains tables from publications that focus on postsecondary education policy issues.

Each section contains tables of estimates and many tables have corresponding standard error tables. To search for a specific table, use the Search NCES Quick Tables feature.

For most tables, DAS programming files used to generate the tables are also available. These files are either Tables Parameter Files (TPF) or Correlation Parameter Files (CPF). TPFs/CPFs can be downloaded, edited, and rerun for customized tables.
