Education

Many states have a use for information about higher education providers, either for analytical purposes or to be able to direct job seekers to appropriate programs.  The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) puts out data about providers and programs offered, organized by state but containing address-level data.
