Additional Source Information: Data are provided in periodic reports from grantees.

Frequency: Annually.
Collection Period: 2004 - 2005
Data Available: October 2005
Validated By: On-Site Monitoring By ED.

Limitations: Data are based on continuous enrollment. Therefore, the current enrollment is being compared to the outcome of graduates, including individuals served in the prior year and those still enrolled at year end. This distorts the numbers when the program is either growing or contracting. Programs differ in objectives and degrees/certificates offered, so very different outcomes are being combined. Reporting is inconsistent from state to state. Some data being combined may not be reliable.
