Archiving Methodology. Volume III: Project-Level Documentation Standard.
Leinwand (C.M.) Associates, Inc., Newton, MA.
This volume of "Archiving Methodology" provides contractors with standards for developing project-level documentation. This volume is designed to acquaint a potential data user with the research and/or evaluative effort that generated the archived data. It serves as both an introduction to and an overview of a collection of data files by providing background information on an entire project, including its original purpose, historical perspective, and enabling legislation. Descriptions of component data files, narratives on the background and significance of the data, and summaries of research goals and findings acquaint the reader with the key concepts of the data files. Beginning with sections that explain the purpose, background, and significance of the data files, subsequent sections deal with the study design, the sample represented by the data, the statistical analyses performed, the major findings of the study, and an overview of the actual data files generated by the study.
