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 recognized completions of academic, vocational, and continuing professional educational programs by award category (i.e., (1) less than four-year certificates and diplomas by length of program, (2) associate's, bachelor's, master's, doctorate, and first-professional degrees, and (3) postbaccalaureate and post-master's certificates). Data were collected by sex for each award category and program specialty, and by racial and ethnic categories for each award category and discipline division.
