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 A copy of Acrobat Reader can be downloaded from the Adobe Systems Incorporated Website at: 7/08 This CD-Rom is superseded because this study is available from ICPSR Direct.

Abstract: This data collection contains information on finances for a sample of postsecondary institutions in the United States. The finance data, collected annually, are used for reporting and projecting capital outlays of two-year and four-year colleges and universities, trends in replacements of plant assets, and performance of endowment funds. Part 1, Institutional Characteristics, includes variables on control and level of institution, religious affiliation, highest level of offering, Carnegie classification, and state FIPS codes and abbreviations. Part 2, Current Funds Revenues by Source (Part A of the survey), provides each institution's current fund revenues by source (e.g., tuition and fees, government, gifts). Part 3, Current Funds Expenditures by Function (Part B), covers expenditures for instruction, research, and plant maintenance. Part 4, Clarifying Questions (Part C of the survey), contains information on total E&G revenues and expenditures to determine what is included/excluded from reported current fund expenditures. Part 5, Utility Expenditures (Part D), reports all expenditures for utilities in the operation and maintenance of the plant, auxiliary enterprises, and independent operations, excluding expenditures for hospitals. Part 6, Scholarships and Fellowship Expenditures (Part E), covers scholarships, defined as grant-in-aid, trainee stipends, tuition and fee waivers, and prizes to undergraduate students, and fellowships given to graduate students. Part 7, Expenditures for Library Acquisitions (Part F), covers costs involved in acquisition of library materials. Part 8, Indebtedness on Physical Plant (Part G), reports data on indebtedness liability against the physical plant, including auxiliary enterprises facilities as well as educational and general facilities, excluding debt issued and backed by the state government. Part 9, Details of Endowment Assets (Part H), provides information on the amounts of gross investments of endowment, term endowment, and funds functioning as endowment for the institution, and any of its foundations and other affiliated organizations. Part 10, Selected Funds Balances (Part I), includes both unrestricted and restricted funds balances. Part 11, Hospital Revenues (Part J), reports the revenues for, or generated by, major public service hospitals over which the institution has fiscal control (not the medical school). Part 12, Physical Plant Assets (Part K), reports the values of land, buildings, and equipment owned, rented, or used by the institution.
