2016-2017 Fact Book: Glossary


This Fact Book is organized so that each data section has its own mini-glossary. Rather than a list of definitions, these contain a narrative explanation of commonly used terms, links to external reporting definitions, timing information (e.g., when data are extracted and reported), etc.

Note that the Common Data Set has its own glossary.

Links to glossary information for each section will be added as they becomes available.
