This function is used to select the year of the data.

sc_year(sccall, year)

Arguments

sccall

Current list of parameters carried forward from prior functions in the chain (ignore)

year

Four-digit year or string latest for latest data.

Important notes

  1. Not all variables have a year option.

  2. At this time, only one year at a time is allowed.

  3. The year selected is not necessarily the year the data were produced. It may be the year the data were collected. For data collected over split years (fall to spring), it is likely the year represents the fall data (e.g., 2011 for 2011/2012 data).

Be sure to check with the College Scorecard data documentation report when choosing the year.

Examples

# NOT RUN {
sc_year() # latest

sc_year(2012)
