Abstract
This collection offers data on the basic characteristics of postsecondary institutions in the United States and covers institutional characteristics for 1993-1994. The data provide the basis for assigning each institution to a specific sector, which in turn determines the selection and distribution of other IPEDS surveys and the specific version of each survey appropriate to the institution. Sector is determined by an institution's type of control (public, private nonprofit, or private for-profit) and its highest level of offering (four-year or higher, at least two-year but less than four-year, or less than two-year certificate, diploma, degree, or other formal award). Key data elements include the name, address, and telephone number of the institution as well as information about levels of course offerings, calendar system, admissions requirements, student services, accreditation, modes of instruction, and institutional eligibility for student financial aid programs. Updated information on tuition and fees and room and board charges for the current academic year also is available. The unit of analysis is the postsecondary institution.
