State Profiles

This site is organized into State Profiles representing state longitudinal data systems (SLDS) as presented through available resources for public primary, secondary and higher education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), Data Quality Campaign, published research articles, other third party internet resources (as noted), and direct contact with state and federal public education officials.   It is not a formal program evaluation.  The information provided is intended for use by researchers, state and federal public policy makers, educators, and student households. The states highlighted in green on the accompanying map include complete and vetted State Profiles.
