I'm looking for data on what share of students are in- or out-of-state, for each college/class. I'm guessing colleges do report this as it is covered in other reports from the NCES (for example, the Enrollment and Employees in Postsecondary Institutions reports). However, I can't seem to find any fields in the College Scorecard data documentation pointing to this.

Any ideas on whether it is possible to get this data?

This was answered by sending an inquiry to [email protected].

The asked-for data is indeed not included in the Scorecard data set, but it released by IPEDS. I found what I was looking for in the EF*C data files at https://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/datacenter.

  • which dataset in IPEDS has this data?
