The NYT Charts Student Debt Across the Nation
With data collected by the Institute for College Access and Success, editors at The New York Times created an interactive graph showing annual tuition and fee costs and average graduate debt for a number of American universities.
The graphic provides a map of universities and categorizes colleges by type of ownership, enrollment size, graduation rate, share of graduates with debt and athletic conference and shows data from 2004 through 2010.
An in-depth article surveying the broader social meaning of the data shown in the graph, including its significance for students, their families and the American economy, can be read here. –ARK
