IPEDS School Data

The U.S. Department of Education is nice enough to collect a vast trove of demographic information on over 7,000 schools in the US. I've created this little mini-app to help you explore the metrics involved. These are just a sliver of all of the available metrics. You can build your own output data and then run it through Tableau. Warning: it's a very rough ride to format this data to something which is beautiful!

Enjoy!

There's no good way to reach me because I don't exist. I'm just a fictitious film director who is also into visual analytics...
