High School and Beyond Fourth Follow-Up. Contractor Report. Methodology Report.
Rasinski, Kenneth; And Others
This report documents activities in preparation for the fourth follow-up of the sophomore cohort of the High School and Beyond (HSB) study in 1992. It describes the development and testing of the data collection systems. The HSB in 1992 is the fifth wave of the longitudinal study of the high school sophomore class of 1980. This longitudinal dataset is extremely rich, and contains past education, labor force activity, demographic, and attitudinal information obtained from the sophomores themselves and from school transcripts, school administrators, and, in some cases, sample members' parents. The fourth follow-up will include respondents' accounts of their life events since the last round of data in 1986. Academic transcripts will also be obtained for those who have attended postsecondary education. A field test began with interviews with 105 sample members, followed by a test of information gathering techniques conducted with 109 respondents from those eligible for the fourth follow-up. Twelve tables and one figure present field test results and follow-up plans. (SLD)
