Policy Indicators for Higher Education: WICHE States

Regional Factbook for Higher Education in the West

In this electronic fact book, WICHE compiles data from a variety of sources into regional and state-by-state data indicators on topics important to policymakers, educators, and researchers in the West.

The indicators are updated throughout the year as newer data become available. But, because the data sources have varying schedules for releasing data, the most recent year covered for each indicator may vary.

Each table below is a downloadable Excel file with regional and state-by-state data.

Recently released: Outcome Measures for the 2009 cohort and State dashboards of resident and non-resident enrollments, 2006 to 2016.
