More Data: Title IX Complaints

I seem to be having a data-heavy weekend. This resource might be potentially useful for fellow researchers who are interested in sexual violence.  This utterly depressing but incredible database lists all known Title IX complaints in US higher education institutions

Description from the Harvard Crimson website:
'The Crimson's searchable database details the outcomes of more than 7,500 Title IX complaints received and closed by the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights between Jan. 1, 2002 and Sept. 22, 2014. The data was obtained by The Crimson through a Freedom of Information Act request and includes the opening date of each complaint case, the date it was closed, the OCR's description of resolution, and whether or not the complaint resulted in a policy change.'
