The U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) offers the following statistical resources and tools devoted to postsecondary education.

What's New from NCES?

  • Parent's Expectations for Postsecondary Education
    Nearly two-thirds (65%) of students in grades 6 through 12 have parents who expect them to earn a bachelor’s degree or higher, according to a recently released study by the Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics.
  • Increase in Unsubsidized Stafford Loans Fuels Growth in Federal Borrowing
    The percentage of students borrowing unsubsidized Stafford loans more than doubled, from 10 percent to 21 percent, between 1995-96 and 2003-04, according to a new report by the National Center for Education Statistics.
  • Pending IPEDS Finance Survey Change Announced
    In an effort to achieve greater comparability among independent and public institutions, the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES) is proposing changes to the IPEDS finance survey. The revised survey would require public institutions to allocate operation and maintenance of facilities, depreciation, and interest expenses among all other functional expense categories--just as independent institutions do.
