The annual Open Doors data release is an exciting day for International Education professionals. The eagerly awaited Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange is the only long-standing, comprehensive information resource on international student mobility to the US, and it is a valuable tool for strategy and planning. But as busy professionals with competing priorities, many of us lack the time to take a deep dive into the data.

That’s where IDP Connect’s IQ dashboards come into play. We are happy to announce that the 2021/2022 Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange data is now live on IDP Connect’s IQ dashboards. Through a partnership with the Institute for International Education (IIE), IDP Connect processes the annual Open Doors data and provides it to you in the format of on-demand, interactive dashboards and data visualizations powered by Tableau. We do the hard work of parsing through the data, and present it in helpful, easy-to-navigate dashboards. Our data visualizations, charts, and graphs summarize the important takeaways from Open Doors and help you apply data insights at your institution.

Through IDP Connect’s Open Doors dashboards, you can:

  • Filter data by country of origin, study level, field of study, and state

  • Understand the big picture using interactive data visualizations

  • Analyze historical trends over the last decade
