INSTITUTIONAL PROFILES SERVICE – Removal of Fields for 2015

Summary

The Institutional Profiles Service relies on data collection through the Profiles Project using the data collection portal.  Several fields were eliminated from the data collection process in 2015.  Removal of the fields means some of the IP service indicators will not be produced.  This document lists the IP service indicators and other data that can no longer be included due to the data collection process changes.
