Financial Information of Universities and Colleges Graphs

What is this?

This site contains graphs of the income and expenditures of Canadian universities and colleges. I've posted an explanation of why I did this, along with detailed analysis of the University of Alberta's graphs.

It is based on the publication Financial Information of Universities and Colleges (FIUC), an annual publication of the Canadian Association of University Business Officers (CAUBO). The original datasets are available from CAUBO, along with errata and information about how to interpret the data. It uses the most recent data available at the time of writing (2010-03-11), which contains data up to the 2007-2008 financial year.

I've done my best to ensure that these graphs are accurate, but there may have been fuckups. If anything seems really weird, double-check with the data on CAUBO's site.

If you have questions, suggestions for further analysis, or want modified graphs, access to my scripts or processed data, please don't hesitate to contact me.

and now, the schools...
