The United States Department of Education has a requirement for a large, complex data collection. This data collection, the College Cost Study, is designed to collect data on specific components of college costs or expenditures/expenses of higher education institutions, to measure these costs according to the methodology specified by the College Cost Commission and to explore the relationship between these costs and the tuition and fees charged by these institutions. The method of data collection will be a computer assisted institutional data collection protocol (IDCP) that will collect data primarily found in the administrative records of the sampled institutions, augmented by interviews with institutional personnel. This study will culminate in a Congressionally mandated report to be delivered to Congress by September 30, 2002.
