Data USA, a free-and-open data-visualization platform that launched in April 2016, added profiles on more than 7,300 higher education institutions, with information including tuition costs, demographics, acceptance rates, financial aid and endowments sizes, among other statistics gleaned from U.S. Department of Education’s Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS).  The platform, a collaboration between Deloitte, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Datawheel, lets users observe publicly available data in an integrated, visualized format, according to César Hidalgo, director of MIT’s Collective Learning group, who told Education Dive the resource allows users to do things like “see the data and visualize it and merge points right away.” Hidalgo said users can compare yields, how many of the students are accepted at a university decided to go there, and much more.
