    The Common Data Set (CDS) initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community. It enables cross-institutional comparison of data and results, including admission, enrollment, faculty, degrees, etc.
    Data on students, student aid, degrees, finances, and staffing are collected by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) via the Integrated Postsecondary Data System (IPEDS) each year.
    The guidebook publishers surveys are to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student's transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers. The Common Data Set and IPEDS are the primary data sources used to complete the publishers survey.
