A Deeper Dive on The Coalition Data
There has been a considerable amount of discussion in the admissions world about The Coalition for Access, Affordability, and Success .  I remain skeptical about the motives behind this, as I did when I wrote this in the Washington Post .  To be clear, howe...

International Enrollment and Engagement

I thought it would be interesting to look at 2012 presidential election data and use census data to see which type of counties voted for which candidate. I think this tells some interesting stories, if you're willing to play with it a little bit.

Begs the question, why do poor people tend to vote Republican? Shouldn't it be the other way?

Hi. New user, having come over from TweetCaster Pro due to some sudden crashing. I also kept the native Twitter app on my MotoX Pure because of the "Embed tweet in RT" function.

I understood you could do the embed and RT function in Talon, but I'm confused. When I hit the large quotation marks, I see the image below. The top portion of the text is not editable, and the bottom has already (in this instance) shown me 10 characters over the limit, although I can delete a lot of the text to put something prior to the RT. But it doesn't show up as embedded, just as an entry prior to the RT.

If I wipe out the bottom RT text, the tweet goes out as a regular tweet.

Have I misunderstood something?

Thanks for the response! Talon is the best I've found, thanks for the cool app.

In-state enrollment and Pell
A recent article in the Washington Post piqued my interest: Why the University of Oregon turned to neighboring states for students , by colleague Roger Thompson. Some of this is no surprise, of course. I've been looking at NCES and WICHE data for years, and...

The Boom in International Enrollment
You hear a lot about enrollment of international students these days, and often, I think, when a subject gets a lot of play, it tends to be overhyped, often by people who don't really understand the data. This would not be one of those times. I used IPEDS t...

Election Results with Census Data
I normally focus on Higher Education data on this blog, and in fact, this visualization started out as a higher education post: I wanted to look at presidential election results from 2012 to see if education played a part in how people voted.  But since I h...

My homage to the Atlas of the Census
In eighth grade, a teacher introduced my class to the Statistical Abstract of the United States , and it changed the way I looked at numbers and information.  Of course, in those days, it was just a book, and very hard to interact with.  But I still remembe...

Educational Attainment in the States
In case the coverage of the 2016 presidential election didn't convince you, this might help you see why people in the rest of the country seem different somehow. The data are from the US Census Bureau's American Community Survey, in 2012; this shows the edu...

Graduation Rates, Rolled Up
