Use R to Calculate and Study basic Admissions Metrics
We were talking about admit rates at work, and as luck would have it, I saw the tweet below coming out of the Eduventures conference basically the same day.
Because we can download full survey datasets from IPEDS, it’s fairly simple to hack something together fairly quickly to test this ourselves. I won’t say much other than to say I found more than 200 schools, but the difference is trivial.
All of my R code can be found here. Poke around the repo if these sort of datasets are interesting to you.
I also have a few plots that highlights what we can do with the datasets.
Lastly, it’s worth noting that the data folder has a CSV file that you can bring into Tableau (or your visualization software of choice) to explore and slice/dice the data even further.
