Applied Systems Inst., Inc., Washington, DC.
The National Assessment of Educational Progress's (NAEP's) Public-Use Data tapes (22 tapes) contain data for several national samples of one particular age-group (9-, 13- or 17-year-olds or adults between the ages of 26 and 35) who were assessed in a particular learning area (citizenship/social studies, mathematics, reading, and science). In order to enhance the ease of using NAEP data for National Institute of Education (NIE) and other secondary analysts and researchers NIE produced full Statistical Analysis System (SAS) and Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) systems versions of NAEP data, for use at the National Institute of Health (NIH) IBM installation. After all tapes are processed, there will be 7 SAS tapes and 8 SPSS tapes containing 25 SAS Data Bases and 202 SPSS system files. SAS Data Bases will contain 202 SAS Data sets. This document is designed as a reference for users who have had some exposure to SAS, SPSS and Job Control Language (JCL). It is not intended as a tutorial introduction, either to SAS programs or to SPSS programs. (Author/CM)
