NCES
U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) Identification Codes allow for linkages to the CCD and PSS information.
  CCD and PSS
As described on the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics website, the CCD is a national database of all public elementary and secondary schools and school districts in the United States. The CCD survey annually collects data about all public elementary and secondary schools, all local education agencies, and all state education agencies throughout the United States. CCD contains three categories of information: general descriptive information on schools and school districts; data on students and staff; and fiscal data. The PSS is a national database of private elementary and secondary schools and school districts in the United States and collects the same information as the CCD.

IPEDS
IPEDS is the core postsecondary education data collection program for NCES. Data are collected from all primary providers of postsecondary education in the country in areas including enrollments, program completions, graduation rates, faculty, staff, finances, institutional prices, and student financial aid. IPEDS defines postsecondary education as a formal program designed primarily for students beyond the ‘compulsory’ high school age. This includes programs whose purpose is academic, vocational, or continuing professional education, and excludes avocational and adult basic education programs.
