Peng, Samuel S.; Holt, Mary M.
Tabular summaries of the 158 numerical responses to the Third Followup Questionnaire items of the National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972 are presented--20,092 individuals responded. These items summarize participants' educational experience and occupational attainments from October 1974 to October 1976; continuing or revised plans about education, training, military service, and jobs; and aspirations, attitudes, and opinions. Results are given for the total sample as well as for subpopulations defined by the following classification variables: sex, race, academic ability, socioeconomic status (SES), high school program, geographic region, sex by race, and cross-classification of sex and race--each by academic ability, SES, high school curriculum, and region. Actual and weighted subpopulation sizes are presented along with the percent distributions of responses for each item for these classification variables. The percentages are based upon valid responses only. Invalid responses are defined by a standard error code and are presented separately. Responses were weighted to express results as population estimates, and to estimate the sampling reliability. (The Third Followup Questionnaire is included.) (Author/CP)
