AMAtlas Data Miner
AMAtlas Data Miner includes more than 350 variables on charitable giving to educational institutions collected through the online Voluntary Support of Education (VSE) Survey. Users have access to 20 years of VSE Survey data from approximately 1,000 public and private U.S. higher education institutions and a select group of private precollege institutions. The data can be downloaded in CSV format.
AMAtlas Data Miner's functionality also enables users to create groups of institutions to study—called comparison groups. These can be designed manually, by listing institutions, or they can be designed by querying the system for like features, such as location, control, type of institution, and more.
