|Primary Investigator(s):||United States Department of Education. National Center for Education Statistics (NCES)|
|Abstract:||The Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) series was designed to provide comprehensive information on various aspects of postsecondary education in the United States and its territories (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands) and Department of Defense schools outside the United States. Data are available for both public and private two-year and four-year institutions. The HEGIS Earned Degrees component for 1979-1980 offers data on the type and control of institution, and the total count, by field of study, of earned degrees and other formal awards conferred by each institution surveyed. Key data elements, presented for up to four record types for each institution (corresponding to level of degree or award), include sex of student and field of specialty.|
