In the spring of 2011, 2,420 institutions were invited to contribute data from the 2009–2010 fiscal year to the EDUCAUSE Core

the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS, are also included. Reported statistics
are either an estimated proportion of the population or an estimated median (rather than a mean). CDS participants can
download data at Non-participants can access other CDS resources at this site.
