Institutional Data


The Office of Institutional Research and Planning regularly publishes the following reports.

Student Data Book
The Student Data Book provides information on enrollment and degrees conferred. Data tables are available for various metrics including student level, type, race/ethnicity, gender, age, residency, and major. The Student Data Book is published each spring semester.

Common Data Set
The Common Data Set (CDS) is a standardized report utilized by higher education institutions across the United States. The report contains answers to many frequently-asked questions about the institution in a format that suits cross-institutional comparisons. The CDS format is defined by the Common Data Set Initiative. Marshall University’s CDS is published early in the spring semester each year.

The Bluebook provides historical trends for enrollment, degree, and faculty data. Faculty data are published to the Data Archive (see the Data Archive section below) each fall semester, while the complete Bluebook is published for a complete academic year in August each year.

Standard Answers to Survey Questions
Published twice each year for fall semester data, this report contains summary data for students, faculty, and staff used in the completion of numerous surveys. The first version of this report contains early semester counts and is published by mid-November. The second version of this report contains end-of-semester counts and is published each spring semester.
