Dataset Information

Additional Information

Format: Each observation concerns one university. In some cases, more information is provided about the attribute (e.g., units or domain). Some duplicates may exist and a single observation may have more than one value for a given attribute (esp. academic emphasis). It appears that several attributes could serve as a distinguished class attribute for this database. The data file remains in the state as given to us by Steve Souders. It is a LISP readable file with a few relevant functions at the end of the data file. The info on missing data values have not been calculated. We hope to get to this in the future.
