NCES 2007164REV Differential Characteristics of 2-Year Postsecondary Institutions
Two-year institutions, including community colleges and career schools, have become increasingly important in American higher education. Many classification systems for 2-year institutions use a wide array of characteristics and perspectives to differentiate between 2-year institutions. This report uses a classification system for 2-year institutions that uses number of variables available on the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) to identify seven groups of 2-year institutions: small publics; medium-sized publics; large publics; allied health not-for-profits; other not-for-profits; degree-granting for-profits; and other for-profits. The report presents brief profiles for each classification type, then focuses on four broad topic areas (institutional resources, student characteristics, institutional affordability, and measures of student success) to highlight the key differences that set a particular institutional type apart. The analysis found that among public institutions, small and large institutions differed in key areas; for example, large public schools tended to offer lower tuition and more services and to be located in urban areas. Private for-profit schools appear quite similar to one another with the exception of the types of credentials offered and completed, which reflect the classification itself. In most other aspects---such as tuition, location, finances, student characteristics, and student financial aid---these institutions exhibited few differences. Other not-for-profits appeared to be similar to for-profits, but slightly more traditional. Allied health institutions differed from other not-for-profit institutions---and the other institutions in the classification system---in terms of the programs offered, funding streams, student characteristics, student costs and the types of awards granted. These schools appeared to be between public institutions and other private schools in terms of affordability and financial aid. Students at allied health institutions were more likely to be older, independent with dependents, and female than their counterparts at other 2-year schools.

NCES 2006030 Digest of Education Statistics, 2005
The 41st in a series of publications initiated in 1962, the Digest’s primary purpose is to provide a compilation of statistical information covering the broad field of American education from prekindergarten through graduate school. The Digest contains data on a variety of topics, including the number of schools and colleges, teachers, enrollments, and graduates, in addition to educational attainment, finances, and federal funds for education, libraries, and international comparisons. Some examples of highlights from the report include the following items. Enrollment in public elementary and secondary schools rose 22 percent between 1985 and 2005. The fastest public school growth occurred in the elementary grades (prekindergarten through grade 8), where enrollment rose 24 percent over this period, from 27.0 million to 33.5 million. Public secondary school enrollment declined 8 percent from 1985 to 1990, but then rose 31 percent from 1990 to 2005, for a net increase of 20 percent. The number of public school teachers has risen faster than the number of students over the past 10 years, resulting in declines in the pupil/teacher ratio. Between 1994 and 2004, the number of full-time college students increased by 30 percent compared to an 8 percent increase in part-time students. During the same time period, the number of men enrolled rose 16 percent, while the number of women enrolled increased by 25 percent.

NCES 2005175 Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System Data Quality Study
The purpose of this study was to assess the quality of IPEDS data that were collected using web-based data collection procedures in 2002–03. The evaluation used information originally collected from Title IV institutions in 2002–03 and new or modified information collected by the Prior Year Data Revision System in 2003–04. Additionally, the evaluation used information from the Thomson Corporation (Thomson Peterson data) to assist in the assessment of IPEDS data when compared to data collected by non-IPEDS sources. The study compared data collected at two different data collection points for eight IPEDS components: Tuition and Price, Employees by Assigned Position, Completions, Enrollment, Student Financial Aid, Finance, Salaries, and Graduation Rates. Within each component, the analyses examined: the number of institutions making changes, the types of changes made, the magnitude of changes, and the impact of changes to published data. Based on revised submissions by eligible Title IV institutions it was concluded that IPEDS data for the 2002–03 academic year were accurate. Very few institutions modified their submissions and among those that did, the magnitude of the change had very little impact on originally reported data. Additionally, information was more likely to be found in IPEDS than in Thomson Peterson. Given that Thomson Peterson is one of the largest postsecondary databases, results tend to confirm the perception that IPEDS is the most comprehensive data system available for information related to postsecondary education.
