Common Data Set
What is the Common Data Set?
The Common Data Set (CDS)
initiative is a collaborative effort between four major college guide
publishers and the higher education community to develop a standard
set of questions and data definitions for use in surveys that gather
information for college guidebooks, rankings and other resources for
prospective students. The purpose is to improve the quality and
consistency of information, while easing the burden on colleges who
receive many survey requests each year.
The four publishers who
have provided the leadership for this initiative are: The College
Board, Peterson's, U.S. News, and Wintergreen/Orchard House
