Data Extraction Schedule

PAIR regularly extracts data from our databases for various projects. To ensure data integrity, some information (such as awarded degrees) are extracted during periods when existing records in the databases are not continually updated. These periods are called Data Freezes. The schedule for when data is extracted during Data Freezes is found in the Data Extraction Schedule.
