Why Peterson's Data?

Peterson's is the only private research firm dedicated to higher education with a team of researchers, data scientists, and technologists dedicated to cataloguing and validating data. Our team members —not computers or bots— work year-round to connect with colleges and universities to ensure that the data is up-to-date and accurate. This dogged tenacity brings our data to market faster than competitors and provides our customers with latest information guaranteed.

“Education Life, the quarterly supplement of The New York Times, regularly uses the statistics collected in the Peterson’s survey of colleges and universities for its Data column.”

Jane Karr Editor
“The data provided by Peterson’s is an invaluable resource. These data exist nowhere else in this detail over such a large span of time. I fully expect the research we produce from these data to contribute substantially to the literature, and encourage researchers interested in the study of higher education to consider collaborating with Peterson’s.”
John Yu Assistant Professor, Gevirtz Graduate School of Education, Center for Educational Leadership
“Peterson’s exhaustive research and responsiveness to the needs of the international student community enables EducationUSA to accomplish much more in making study in the United States possible.”
