In a presentation typically delivered to new deans and select managers on campus, the Office of Planning & Analysis (OPA) will share institutional data about the UC Berkeley undergraduate student body.

Ever wonder what U.S. States our out-of-state domestic students come from, or how the demographics of freshman entrants differ from transfer entrants? OPA staff will cover these topics, and much much more.

Cal Answers Student Data Community,

The Undergrad Apps by Multiple Fields report in the Undergraduate Applicants dashboard used an older design that only allowed you to group data by four fields at a time. Newer reports in Cal Answers, however, such as Grad Apps by Multiple Fields, Financial reports, and HR reports, all use an improved design in which you can include or exclude any number of fields that you want from a large list.

BFS and Cal Answers Community,

Now that UCPath is live, payroll journals will post in BFS and be displayed in Cal Answers more frequently. As a result, we will no longer send email notifications when payroll data are made available in reports.

Payroll expense transfers processed in PPS for pre-UCPath payroll entries (transactions for pay periods ending 03/09/19 and prior) will continue to be posted once a month in BFS with the PPS data available for reporting in the legacy Payroll Expense report in Cal Answers.

Cal Answers Community,
 
Cal Answers is now available, with an upgrade! You'll notice a slightly cleaner look, more chart options, and some updated icons. The upgrade also made it possible to sort data within graphs, copy data from results, and reuse columns. Visit the Cal Answers website for an overview of the changes that were made.
