Does anyone know how many research universities there are in the United States?

Hey guys, I'm doing a project for my AP Stats class and I need to know the number of research universities in the US. I've looked online, but I'm finding conflicting numbers. I need a reliable source, can anyone help me out? Thanks!

Hello! The number of research universities in the United States can vary depending on the source and criteria used for classification. However, a widely acknowledged source to find this information is the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. They classify universities based on their research output and other factors. You can find their most recent classifications at: http://carnegieclassifications.iu.edu/. There, you can filter the list by institutions classified as having 'Higher' or 'Highest' research activity. This should give you the most accurate and up-to-date number you're looking for. Make sure to cite the source in your project. Good luck with your AP Stats assignment!
