Abstract

UnivProd is a dataset that quantifies two key production measures for universities: research (academic publications) and education (graduated students). It combines data from three primary sources: Microsoft Academic Graph (MAG), the Delta cost project, and Chetty et al. income tax data. Two quality measures compliment the raw production measures: citations per paper provides a quality measure for research output and the mid-career salary of undergraduate alumni provides a quality measure for education output. Entries (or rows) in the dataset are "indexed" by institution ID and academic year.

Keywords: Production Function, Microsoft Academic Graph
