College Affordability and Transparency Center Report by U.S. Department of Education

Marilyn Korhonen's insight:

The U.S. Department of Education released its third round of College Affordability and Transparency information on Thursday, calling attention to the nation's most- and least-expensive colleges.


The interactive report —with price lists by sector—is part of a continuing effort to give prospective students and their families more information about college. 


Some of the lists look at tuition alone, while others include net price, subtracting grant aid from the total cost of attendance, which includes expenses like housing. The government calculates increases in tuition and net price on a three-year basis, in accordance with the federal higher-education law.

Marilyn Korhonen's curator insight, June 28, 2013 10:32 AM

NCES has added 30 tables to the International Data Table Library, including new tables on school expenditure by the following criteria: 


• core and ancillary services

• level of student education 

• public and private educational institutions

• core and ancillary services

• student and school expenditures

• financial aid, tuition and fees 

• service category of educational institutions 

• resources for staff compensation


Other tables include those related to in-school instructional time per year; student participation in after-school lessons; information on teaching staff (i.e., ratio to students; teacher salaries; teaching hours per year; age and gender distribution; and student graduation rates). 


The International Data Table Library now includes over 250 statistical tables with data that compare facets of education in the United States with those of other countries. More tables will be added in the future and data will be updated regularly. The library tables include data collected by NCES as well as data from other organizations, including the OECD and the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA). The complete library will include tables addressing five areas: (1) participation in education, (2) education outcomes, (3) school contexts, (4) students’ experiences and attitudes about education, and (5) education system characteristics. The new tables are in areas 3 and 5 and, for the first time, reference statistics providing an overview of economic contexts.

These data provide a ready source for researchers and are related to multiple disciplines.
