Sample description: 

The sample for this analysis is comprised of all active, degree-granting institutions of higher education in the United States that are open to the public.

The universe of active, degree-granting higher education institutions that are open to the public contains 4,891 institutions; a total of 2,807 survey responses were included in the analysis, representing 57.4% of the sample universe. Because non-responding institutions are predominately those with the smallest enrollments, the institutions included in the analysis represent 78.7% percent of higher education enrollments. The 2013 responses were merged with the data from the previous survey years (994 responses in 2003, 1,170 in 2004, 1,025 in 2005, 2,251 in 2006, 2,504 in 2007, 2,577 in 2008, 2,590 in 2009, 2,583 in 2010, 2,512 in 2011 2,820 in 2012, and 2,831 in 2013) for examination of changes over time.
