HEADS Data Summaries


HEADS Data Summaries, the statistical summaries compiled from the Annual Reports (HEADS Data Surveys) of member institutions and other participating music units from 1982-1983 through 2020-2021, provide information on enrollment, faculty numbers and salaries, administrative processes, budgets, a series of comparative ratios, and other operational information. Most data is reported by size and type of institution.

Given the move to the new platform in 2021, which has facilitated the replacement of HEADS Data Summaries with navigable dashboards, HEADS Data Summaries for the academic years 2003-2004 through 2020-2021 for music as well as those for the disciplines of art and design, dance, and theatre now are available without charge. When available, access to the HEADS Data Summaries published between 1982-1983 and 2002-2003 will be added to this site. Access to the HEADS Data Summaries for music is provided below as are links to HEADS Data Summaries specific to the disciplines of art and design, dance, and theatre.
