The school file includes information about the environment, staff, procedures, facilities, and curricula of the NLS sample high schools. Section two contains copies of the School Questionnaire and Counselor Questionnaire data collection instruments. Section three serves as a quick guide to the contents of the school file and contains a summary listing of each variable contained in it. The listing provides, for each variable, the variable number, the short label, the location of the decimal point, the tape position, and a long label. Section four presents a complete listing of the variables and variable frequency distributions in the data file. For each variable in the file, the variable number, a short variable lable, the type location, a longer variable description, and a completely labeled frequency distribution are presented.
