High School and Beyond: A National Longitudinal Study For the 1980's. Sample Design Report.
Frankel, Martin R.; And Others
The 1980 National Center for Education Statistics' National Longitudinal Survey, "High School and Beyond," was intended to be a general, multi-purpose study, serving a number of diverse needs. The present study sought to increase the data's usefulness, accuracy, and scope. While allowing for analyses of schools and students on a national level, the study also permitted separate analyses on specific types of schools and subclasses of students. Included are descriptions of the sample design, sample selection, and sample results. Chapter 2 discusses the construction of the sample frame of high schools in the United States. Chapter 3 examines the manipulation of the frame with respect to its stratified design, while the actual school selection procedures and results are reviewed in chapter 4. Chapter 5 then describes the construction of the student sampling frame, the selection of students, and those results. The last two chapters examine the calculations of the sample weights and the sampling errors. (Author/GK)
