FACTS is an online reporting system, developed by the Office of Institutional Research. FACTS offers interactive reports, covering many of OIR's common report requests. Reports can be exported to spreadsheets. Available to full-time UGA employees with a valid MYID and password.

Unit Profile provides a unit-by-unit look at seven years of data for seven major sets of data (student enrollment, faculty headcount, square footage, credit hours, degrees conferred, employee headcount, employee EFT, and expenditures). Available to full-time UGA employees with a valid MYID and password.

The Fact Book is OIR’s annual publication, now in its 45th edition, providing current and in many cases historical information on a variety of subject areas including admissions, student enrollment, degrees conferred, academic information, faculty/staff, financial and facilities.
