An R data-package for NCES IPEDS data. Instead of crawling the data manually or using the IPEDS package, this package simply keeps stores the data in R data frames for easy access. All you need to do is load the survey data of choice into your environment, and you are off and running. In addition, there will be some helper functions to calculate common KPIs, like admit rate, freshmen discount rate, etc.
To install the package, simply use devtools. This will take a second because there are a lot of data to grab.

What do we have?
Keep records where the # of applicants isn't missing
ic = filter(ic, applcn > 0 & app_year >= 2002)
Plot the data by the app year, which is not always in the survey year.
tbl_df(ic) %>% group_by(app_year) %>% summarise(apps = sum(applcn)) %>% plot(type="l", ylim=c(0,10000000))
Prior to 2014, it looks like some institutions had the choice on what application year they would report. In 2014, it apepars that the option was removed. As a result, there is a sizable drop in app volume in 2013.

ADMwere broken out. What's more, the file
ADM.csvonly includes 2236 schools but
IC2014.csvincludes 7531 schools. Finally, the variable
appdatewhich flags the fall reporting year appears to be missing in 2014, so I am assuming that the survey year is based on the Fall reporting year.
