The Top American Research Universities The first two tables list each institution with the most current
data available for each measure and its corresponding national rank (i.e., rank among all institutions regardless of whether they are privately or publicly controlled). The third through sixth tables provide the same nine data measures but with the groupings determined by the control rank (i.e., rank among all private or all public institutions). Institutions ranking in the top 25 on at least one measure are included in the tables with the (1-25) identifier, while those ranking 26 through 50 are found in the tables labeled with the (26-50) header. Many research universities rank highly both nationally and among their public or private peers, and therefore appear in more than one table.
