Data on America’s Best-Enrolled Sociology Departments

The most recent episode of The Annex featured a discussion of enrollments in sociology departments. You can see the segment here:

The segment discussed these (very poorly formatted) tables:

America’s Largest Sociology Departments by Graduating Class Size, 2020, IPEDS, 1 of 2
America’s Largest Sociology Departments by Graduating Class Size, 2020, IPEDS, 2 of 2
HIghest Ratio of Majors Graduates in Sociology to Total Graduates, 2020, IPEDS data

This analysis is admittedly quick-and-dirty. Here’s the data: Set One Set Two
