Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study First Follow-Up. B&B:93/94. Public Use Data Analysis System (DAS) [CD-ROM].
National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
This CD-ROM contains data from the Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:93/94) in the form of a public release Data Analysis System that contains most of the variables from the study that are of interest to analysts for descriptive purposes. The B&B:93 study tracks the experiences of a cohort of recent college graduates, those who received the baccalaureate degree during the 1992-93 academic year and were first interviewed as part of the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study. B&B will follow this group into graduate school or first professional school and the workforce to provide information about experiences in the areas of academic enrollment, degree completion, employment, public service, and other adult decisions. The study will eventually provide data to assess the outcomes of postsecondary education, graduate and professional program access, and rates of return on investment in education. As part of the series of postsecondary cohort studies of the National Center for Education Statistics, the study will be based on, and will use a sample from, all students who complete a bachelor's degree no matter how long they take. Directions for installation; a list of the directories, subdirectories, and files; and additional information about batch processing and uninstalling are included in a README.txt file. Frequently asked questions about using the file are answered. TYPE OF SURVEY: Longitudinal; Follow-up Survey; National Survey. POPULATION: College Graduates.
