Where does Peterson's college data come from?

It comes from Peterson's Annual Surveys. Our surveys are sent to thousands of accredited colleges and universities that meet our criteria, resulting in tens of thousands of survey pages processed each year. All data is submitted by officials at each school. In addition, many of the institutions that submitted data were contacted directly by Peterson's research staff to verify unusual figures, resolve discrepancies, or obtain additional data. All usable information received in time before the close of each survey is included in each database.
