Since 1913, the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission has administered a program of historical markers to capture the memory of people, places, and events that have affected the lives of Pennsylvanians over the centuries since William Penn founded his Commonwealth. More than 2,000 bronze plaques and cast aluminum markers tell the stories of Native Americans and settlers, government and politics, athletes, entertainers, artists, struggles for freedom and equality, factories and businesses, and a multitude of other topics. This dataset includes Pennsylvania historical markers by title, dedication date, location, county, category and marker text.
Pennsylvania Spatial Data Access (PASDA) is Pennsylvania's official public access geospatial information clearinghouse. PASDA was developed in 1996 by the Pennsylvania State University and has served as the clearinghouse for Pennsylvania for over twenty years.
PASDA is a cooperative project of the Governor's Office of Administration, Office for Information Technology, and Penn State Institutes of Energy and the Environment of the Pennsylvania State University. Funding and support is provided by the Pennsylvania Office for Information Technology. Penn State contributions include system administration support and infrastructure from the Institute for CyberScience, and the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences.
PASDA was developed as a service to the citizens of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The purpose of PASDA is to serve as the Commonwealth's comprehensive and coordinated open geospatial data portal that provides free public access to geospatial data and information by, for, and about the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. PASDA is Pennsylvania's node on the National Spatial Data Infrastructure,Geospatial One-Stop, and is integrated with the National States Geographic Information Council GIS Inventory.
The purpose of the 12-Month Enrollment component of IPEDS is to collect unduplicated enrollment counts of all students enrolled for credit and instructional activity data in postsecondary institutions for an entire 12-month period. Data are collected by level of student and by race/ethnicity and gender. Instructional activity is collected as total credit and/or contact hours attempted at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctor's professional levels. Using the instructional activity data reported, a full-time equivalent (FTE) student enrollment at the undergraduate and graduate level is estimated.
The dataset provides at a location level, the number of funded Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts (PKC) and Head Start Supplemental Assistance Program (HSSAP) slots. The dataset begins in program year 2014-17 and will be updated annually to reflect the current program year funding.
Note: Data is accurate as of 11/30/2017 and may not include all funded slots for 2017-18.
