Data sets and content previously found at data.ed.gov can now be found at education.data.gov
Originally, we created the separate data.ed.gov portal because we wanted to provide the public with advanced features and visualization tools that were not yet available on Data.gov. Today, the Data.gov Education Community not only fully supports visualization and mapping technologies, but it benefits from the continual addition of new enhancements, tools, and features. A key new tool is an API “wizard” that will make it faster and easier to create APIs for existing and upcoming open datasets, increasing the ways developers can interact with this data.
Additionally, as part of the government-wide Digital Government Strategy and the Education Data Initiative, an increasing number of developers and data enthusiasts are looking to Data.gov as the central source for finding, analyzing, and working with government data. Ensuring that all education-related open data lives on Data.gov, instead of on a separate website, ultimately means that more people can find and interact with it, and that we can nurture a larger, stronger community of individuals focused around education data.
Prior to today, the following 14 datasets lived exclusively on data.ed.gov. You can now find them on the education.data.gov developer page:
- Broadband Availability for U.S. Schools

What did not move?
As mentioned above, the URLs for existing education data APIs did not change. They were originally based off of data.gov and will continue to live there.
Currently, a developer page will continue to be hosted by ED.gov. Even as additional developer resources are added to the Data.gov Education Community, we will continue to maintain a presence at www.ed.gov/developers specifically for developers who work with education data.
