Derived Residency now Available in Cal Answers Student Demographics & Outcomes
The Residency Status column in Cal Answers Student Demographics & Outcomes dashboards has been replaced with Derived Residency, which makes it easy to distinguish between
- CA Resident
- Out of State Domestic
- International students.
Previously, two separate fields were needed to accomplish this. The change applies to both prompts and column selectors in the dashboards. In the Ad Hoc areas, both fields remain available.
Before the Change
Residency Status distinguished among residents and nonresidents. To see counts of out-of-state domestic students, users needed to use two fields: Residency Status and Ethnicity.
After the Change
With Derived Residency, you can view counts of out-of-state domestic students using one field. The Derived Residency values include
- CA Resident
- Out-of-State Domestic
Impacts to your work
Student Data Dashboards -> Report Tabs
The Derived Residency Desc field is now available on the following tabs:
- Census -> Census by Multiple Field
- Degrees ->Degrees by Multiple Fields
- All of the tabs in Graduation, Retention & Time to Degree
- Restricted Time to Degree
Ad Hoc Analysis
In ad-hoc, you will still have access to Residency Status Cd and Residency Status Desc along with the two new fields, Derived Residency Cd and Derived Residency Desc.
Bookmark Links & Saved Customizations
