dc.description.abstractData on institutional saving in US higher education have not been available until now,yet they are useful in several ways. They describe how various types of schools are doingfinancially, and whether their present behavior is sustainable. They complete the pictureof sources and uses of revenue for institutions of higher learning, which allows us to pindown the degree to which the charitable mission of these schools is responsible for theirincome. They describe a limit to aggressive price reductions. And they allow for someprojections of what the economic structure of higher education will look like in thefuture. Financial data for U.S. higher education institutions from the U.S. Department ofEducation's Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) are used tocompute savings rates for 2109 institutions in 1995-6, and for 1581 institutions for apanel of the years 1986-7, 1990-1, and 1995-6. These data are available as Excel or Statafiles.en_US
