The data may be obtained in either of two formats. AAUP.DATA contains the raw data in comma delimited fields with a single data line for each school. The order of variables is the same as given below for the fixed column version, although the spacing varies for each school. AAUP2.DATA has the data arranged in fixed columns, with two data lines for each school and a maximum line length of 80 characters. This dataset is taken from the March-April 1994 issue of Academe.

This is the subject of the 1995 Data Analysis Exposition sponsored by the Statistical Graphics Section of the American Statistical Association. The purpose of the Exposition is to encourage statisticians to demonstrate techniques, especially graphical, for analyzing data and displaying the results of an analysis. Individuals and groups will work with the same set of data and present their analyses at a special session as part of the annual Joint Statistical Meetings in Orlando, Florida on August 13th-17th, 1995. The datasets for 1995 are drawn from two sources, U.S. News & World Report's Guide to Americas Best Colleges and the AAUP (American Association of University Professors) 1994 Salary Survey which appeared in the March-April 1994 issue of Academe. The U.S. News data contains information on tuition, room & board costs, SAT or ACT scores, application/acceptance rates, graduation rate, student/faculty ratio, spending per student, and a number of other variables for 1300+ schools. The AAUP data includes average salary, overall compensation, and number of faculty broken down by full, associate, and assistant professor ranks. The raw data and documentation are contained in the files described below. To obtain any of these files send a message to statlib@lib.stat.cmu.edu of the following form (substituting the file you want for XXXXX) send XXXXX from colleges Available files usnews.doc Documentation for the U.S. News data usnews.data U.S. News data in comma delimited format usnews3.data U.S. News data in fixed column format aaup.doc Documentation for the AAUP salary data aaup.data AAUP salary data in comma delimited format aaup2.data AAUP salary data in fixed column format Two versions of each dataset are provided to accommodate users with different software constraints. The comma delimited versions (USNEWS.DATA and AAUP.DATA) contain information for each college on a separate line with values delimited by commas. The fixed column versions (USNEWS3.DATA and AAUP2.DATA) use 2 or 3 data lines per school and a maximum line length of 80 characters. To participate in the 1995 Data Analysis Exposition you must send an abstract form to the American Statistical Association by February 1st, 1995. Information is available from the ASA Meetings Department by e-mail (meetings@asa.mhs.compuserve.com), phone (703-684-1221), fax (703-684-2037), or surface mail (ASA, 1429 Duke St., Alexandria, VA 22314). Your initial abstract may be fairly general since you may do the bulk of your analysis after the February 1 deadline. You may choose your own path to proceed in analyzing the data or use some of the suggested questions below to get started. ... How well can we model tuition using the other variables? ... How might we cluster colleges into similar comparison groups? ... How can we best display faculty salary structure? ... Can we find a reasonable way to rank the schools? You may work on your own or put together a team. Show off the capabilities of your favorite software package or use the data for a class project and display your students results. You may choose to consider just a subset of schools or examine regional patterns. The main point is to find innovative ways to display the interesting features of the data. Further questions about the 1995 Exposition can be directed to Robin Lock, Mathematics Department, St. Lawrence University, Canton, NY 13617 e-mail rlock@vm.stlawu.edu If you would like to be informed about any subsequent adjustments or error fixes to the 1995 Exposition data, please send an e-mail message to register your interest to rlock@vm.stlawu.edu.
