Q&A: Athletic and Team Budgets in the NCAA and Colleges

April 9, 2010
Mr. James R. (Librarian) Jacobs

Question: I want to compare the amounts spent by NCAA colleges and universities on their teams and various sports. Where's the best place to look?

Answer: The United States Department of Education maintains a data analysis site called Equity in Athletics Data Analysis Cutting Tool. This allows the user to generate "rapid customized reports for [questions] relating to equity in athletics data."

"The database consists of athletics data that are submitted annually as required by the Equity in Athletics Disclosure Act (EADA), via a Web-based data collection, by all co-educational postsecondary institutions that receive Title IV funding (i.e., those that participate in federal student aid programs) and that have an intercollegiate athletics program."

Spending on teams and athletic programs can be compared between schools, regions, etc.
