Davidson College participates in the Common Data Set Initiative, an effort within the higher education community to define uniform standards for statistical data.

Per the Common Data Set website:

"The Common Data Set Initiative is a collaborative effort among data providers in the higher education community and publishers as represented by the College Board, Peterson's, and U.S. News & World Report. The combined goal of this collaboration is to improve the quality and accuracy of information provided to all involved in a student's transition into higher education, as well as to reduce the reporting burden on data providers."

Common Data Set (CDS) files are provided in PDF format.
