A Selected State-Level Education Data Base.
In initial state-level data base of 30 selected measurements of educational policy and practice and related state conditions is presented. The variables were selected, in part, as distinctive phenomenon with potential relevance to education. Each measure has been defined to promote inter-state comparability. The measurements were selected to represent a broad spectrum of state conditions relevant to education in the areas of demography (e.g., net migration and youth in poverty); economics (e.g., tax effort and school size); schools (e.g., school size and expenditures); politics (number of local governments and composition of state legislature); participation rates (e.g., high school graduation rate and college starting rate); migration (public system attractiveness to residents and non-residents); public system characteristics (e.g., public versus private strength and geographic accessibility); program and retention profiles (e.g., graduation profile and graduate education emphasis); and finance of public higher education (e.g., role of tuition and public system financial support). Each entry was required to have a partially distinct, although possibly small, causal potential to some aspect of education policy and/or operations. The supporting tables for the data base are as follows: basic data migration, college starting, retention profiles; historical data (migration, college starting, retention); and indexes of state level data base variables.
