Comments: This study is on ICPSR Periodic Release 97003. The Periodic Release CD-ROM is a product designed for use on a Windows- or DOS-based personal computer and is intended for use as a means of data distribution. It may also be used within the Macintosh environment utilizing either system 7.0 and above or system 6.08 and the appropriate PC emulation software. The CD-ROM does not contain software for text or data searches, extraction or analyses. The files with the .EXE extension are self extracting files that were generated using Info-ZIP's ZIP compressor/archiver and PKWARE's ZIP2EXE utility for generating self-extracting files. Self-extracting files allow PC users to easily and quickly decompress and transfer the files to their equipment, usually a hard disk, without the need to install any extraction software locally. Files with .PDF extensions are provided as an electronic image file in Portable Document File (PDF) format. The PDF format was developed by Adobe Systems Incorporated and can be accessed using the Adobe Acrobat Reader. A copy of Acrobat Reader can be downloaded from the Adobe Systems Incorporated Website at: http://www.adobe.com. 7/08 This CD-Rom is superseded because this study is available from ICPSR Direct.

Abstract: This data collection contains information on degrees earned at a sample of postsecondary institutions in the United States. The survey collected data on the number of completions of academic, vocational, and continuing professional educational programs by award category. There are five files in this data collection, three of which are organized according to award category (Part 2: Sub-Baccalaureate Degrees, Part 3: Bachelor's Through Doctor's Degrees, and Part 4: First Professional Degrees). Part 1, Institutional Characteristics is a comprehensive file pertaining to the characteristics (i.e., religious affiliation, highest level of offering, enrollment by race/ethnicity, Carnegie classification, etc.) of all the institutions surveyed. Part 5, CIP Codes and Titles, provides a detailed list of the Classification of Instructional Programs codes and their titles found in the data files.
