The best policy decisions are based on evidence and fact. The Education Data Explorer makes it easier than ever to access and analyze the data that can generate rigorous, accurate, and actionable insights to improve student outcomes. The portal allows users to search for a single school, school district, or college or to compare several schools, districts, or colleges across various data points.
Join the Urban Institute’s Office of Technology and Data Science and Center on Education Data and Policy for a behind-the-scenes look at how to perform analyses using the explorer’s summary endpoint functionality through our R and Stata packages.
