I am trying to determine if we have access through the DLI to university enrollments (by institution) and faculty numbers (by institution). We do have access to the Financial Information of Universities and Colleges (FIUC) by institution.
The Enhanced Student Information System (ESIS) should be the source for the enrolment data by institution but I don’t see any access to that. The University and College Academic Staff Survey (UCASS) should be the source for the faculty data by institution; we do have access to UCASS through DLI but I could only find the data at the provincial level and not by institution.
I am surprised that we can get financial information at the institution level but apparently not enrolment and faculty numbers. Is this data only available through custom tabulations? Any assistance with this would be very much appreciated.
1) Check out http://www.caut.ca/pages.asp?page=442. Specifically Section 2, Table 2.12 and Section 4, Tables 4.4 and 4.5. There may be other tables of interest.
2) That suggestion is a good one because institution-level data for university enrolments and faculty numbers are not available through the DLI. They can, however, be ordered for a fee. A similar question came up in the summer so I have provided a link to the complete answer which will give you some idea of what you could expect to pay:
