Selected Papers on the Schools and Staffing Survey: Papers Presented at the 1997 Meeting of the American Statistical Association. Working Paper Series.
National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
The five papers from this volume, which were presented at the 1997 American Statistical Association meeting, are of particular interest to users of National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) survey data. They deal with the Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS), a periodic survey conducted by the U.S. Bureau of the Census for the NCES. The SASS provides data on the policies and conditions of public and private elementary and secondary schools, principals, libraries, librarians, teachers, and students in the United States. The following papers are included: (1) "Applying Mass Imputation Using the Schools and Staffing Survey Data" (Steven Kaufman and Fritz Scheuren); (2) "The Effect of Mode of Interview on Estimates from the 1993-94 Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) Public School Teacher Survey" (Cornette L. Cole, Robert C. Abramson, Randall J. Parmer, and Dennis J. Schwanz); (3) "Reinterview: A Tool for Survey Quality Improvement" (Patricia J. Fiendt, Irwin D. Schreiner, and John Bushery); (4) "Improving the Coverage of Private Elementary-Secondary Schools" (Betty J. Jackson, Nancy R. Johnson, and Richard L. Frazier); and (5) "1993-94 Student Records Survey: Sampling and Weighting Conundra" (Randall J. Parmer, Robert C. Abramsom, Cornett L. Cole, Lenore A. Colaciello, and B. Dale Garrett). Each paper contains references. (Contains 18 tables.) (SLD)
