Interactive Fact Book

Jacksonville State University

Welcome to Jacksonville State University's Interactive Fact Book. The Fact Book provides frequently requested information about JSU to assist with reporting, decision-making and general research. The interactive format allows the user to filter much of the data provided.

Most of the data contained within the Fact Book are collected on the Census date for the specified term. In the case of data displayed for a specific year, the data are collected on the Census date each term within the academic year. Census data are stored in the Office of Institutional Research and Effectiveness (OIRE) Data Warehouse. Data provided by OIRE are considered the university's official data.

Much of the data are based on Fall terms and entire academic years. As we continue to develop this site, we will include additional terms and features.

For assistance in using the interactive Fact Book, please contact an OIRE staff member.
