I am looking at some specific questions, and I need some data that doesn't appear to be immediately forthcoming. If necessary, I will hunt it down. The questions are:
- Of all accredited graduate schools in the US, what percentage produced PMF nominees in 2010?
- What was the performance rate of all PMF-nominating schools in 2010? That is, of schools who nominated, how many became finalists?
- What is the overall PMF performance rate of accredited graduate schools in the US?
- Of all Historically Black Colleges and Universities, what is the performance rate (nominees to finalists)? How does that compare to the larger set of schools?
To answer these questions, I need one dataset that I don't already have: the number of US graduate schools (and preferably a full list).
If I can get this, I still need to clean up the data so it can be compared in databases.
I really don't care about anything but aggregate statistics. With any luck, this data can be collected and analyzed several years in a row (so back data is also appreciated).
