Berdan, Robert; And Others
The survey questionnaire and a description of the coding system used for analyzing the data collected in a survey of Cherokee language and education are presented. The survey was designed to study language use, bilingualism, and education in the Cherokee community. The survey encompassed 198 Cherokee children between the ages of 5 and 14 who attended public school. Findings are reported in a separate volume. The coding system was developed to categorize and assign numerical designations to the responses to the survey questions as a prerequisite to data analysis. The codebook is intended to provide all the information needed to aid the user in working with the data from the Cherokee language survey. (RW)
