The Obama administration recently release College Scorecard Data with detailed information on college cost and earning after graduation. Does anybody know if the full data set is available for analysis? Or has somebody created a scraper (for me, ideally in R) to get the data?

  • I also edited your post to use the preferred tag "collegescorecard" for this data. The .gov web site links to this OpenData StackExchange site using that tag. Sep 13, 2015 at 19:55
  • For meta discussion about the tags, see meta.opendata.stackexchange.com/q/324/1511

  • If anyone wants this in a package reachable with a data() command, let me know and I will upload it to CRAN. I assume most R users can load the data themselves but may be wrong. Nov 20, 2015 at 15:36
