The Common Data Set (CDS) is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson's, and U.S. News & World Report. Data items and definitions used by the U.S. Department of Education in its higher education surveys often serve as a guide. Find general information about the Common Data Set here.
