beginning of content:

The AP Program compiles a vast amount of data each year on AP Exam participation, performance,  and volume that can be used to compare  exam takers  worldwide. Available in both PDF and Excel formats, the reports include detailed data separated into  categories that can be used to evaluate relative performance during a single school year or over a span of years.

These data also show how participation in the AP Program has grown, which exams are taken by the greatest number of students, which states have increased the number of students taking AP Exams, which colleges receive the greatest number of AP Exam scores, and much more.
