Whitener, Summer D.; Gruber, Kerry J.; Rohr, Carol L.; Fondelier, Sharon E.
The Teacher Followup Survey (TFS) is a 1-year followup of a sample of teachers who were originally selected for the Teacher Questionnaire of the Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) of the National Center for Education Statistics. There have been three data cycles for the SASS and three TFS versions. This data file user's manual enables the user to understand and access the TFS files for 1994-95. The survey is described in the following chapters: (1) "Overview"; (2) "Sample Design"; (3) "Data Collection"; (4) "Edit Procedures"; (5) "Response Rates"; (6) "Imputation"; (7) "Weighting"; (8) "Variance Estimation"; (9) "Reinterview Program"; (10) "Confidentiality Protection Measures"; (11) "Changes to TFS Content from 1991-92 to 1994-95"; (12) "Caution Concerning the Measurement of Change Using 1991-92 and 1994-95 TFS"; and (12) "User Notes and Comments." Appendixes A and B contain the questionnaires for current and former teachers. Appendix C is the crosswalk for variables from the three TFS versions, and Appendix D contains the industry and occupation codes. Appendix E is the 1994-95 restricted use codebook. (SLD)
