National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
The Parent Survey of High School and Beyond is a study of the parents of 1980 high school seniors and sophomores in the United States conducted in 1980 as part of a national study of these cohorts of students which was intended to follow them through their early adulthood. The revised machine-readable data file (MRDF) Parent Analysis File (PAF) contains data from questionnaires completed by a national sample of parents of 3,367 sophomores and 3,197 seniors from 312 high schools selected from the High School and Beyond Class of 1980 sample. Each record includes information on parents' aspirations and plans for their children's postsecondary education; information on family assets and debts; sources of income; type of employment; marital status; educational attainment; ethnic background; and language spoken at home. This revised file augments the first version with 22 additional variables, half of which are measures of income and wealth. The PAF contains 6,564 records. The tape has three files: (1) parent data file; (2) the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences control cards; and (3) the machine-readable codebook. A bound codebook is also available.
