ELS:2002 Data Collection Waves
NCES-Barron’s Admissions Competitiveness Index Data files: 1972, 1982, 1992, 2004, 2008, and 2014 are now available. This file has been updated with new 2014 data from Barron’s American College Profiles (2015 edition). It is available as a restricted-use data file. The data is based on 4-year colleges and universities. The Barron’s ratings can be linked to the elementary/secondary and postsecondary longitudinal studies and can be used for the analysis of 4-year colleges and universities using the NCES postsecondary institution IDs. Contact IES Data Security to request access.
