National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972. Tabular Summary of Student Questionnaire Data Volume 2. (Questions 38-95).
Thompson, Bruce W.
In the spring of 1972 over 1,000 high schools participated in the first phase of the National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972. Extensive data from a sample of almost 18,000 students was gathered. The same individuals will be examined over a period of 6-8 years in order to examine the relationship between schooling and other experiences as career paths begin to emerge. Such information will be useful to planners, policymakers, and educational researchers interested in improving the educational system and making it more responsive to students and their needs. This report contains summary information resulting from the administration of the Student Questionnaire to seniors. Tabulation of the results from questionnaire items 38-95 are presented in this volume. Specifically, these items focus on (1) student family background; (2) perception of career opportunities; (3) plans to be a homemaker or enter military service; (4) probability of continuing education or work on a part-time basis; (5) opportunities for apprenticeships or vocational training; and (6) anticipated means of financing post-secondary education.
