Benchmarking Data Services

CSWE's Benchmarking Services offer individualized data about baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral social work programs. CSWE uses data from its Annual Survey of Social Work Programs to generate benchmark reports.

The cost of benchmarking reports varies based on the complexity of the report and the factors/variables requested. Price quotes are typically provided within 2 business days of receipt of an order form. Payment can be made by check or credit card. Purchase orders are not an accepted form of payment. Payment in installments is not an option. CSWE requires verified payment before beginning work on reports. Reports are typically delivered no later than 30 business days after payment has been verified.

CSWE benchamrking data should be used in concert with other administrative, research, and recruitment analytical methods to inform and make decisions. All social work program data are self-reported; CSWE can only attest to the accuracy of how information provided by programs is presented. To maintain anonymity, CSWE aggregates most data. CSWE does not provide data in a category based on fewer than five individuals or fewer than three programs.
