I recently finished my first term of college. My honors writing for engineers course was culminated with a group research project on a topic of our choice. Lane Porth and I wrote a paper analyzing whether the additional cost of private higher education is worthwhile compared to the (usually) cheaper cost of public higher education. As part of our research, we conducted an online survey, and promised to put the results of the survey online once our project was completed. You can now download a spreadsheet with the results of the survey, and participants' comments (disassociated from their answers). All answers in the survey are anonymous.

The data are available for download in Microsoft Excel 2010 format (xlsx).
