Whitener, Summer D.; Gruber, Kerry J.; Rohr, Carol; Fondelier, Sharon
The Teacher Followup Survey (TFS) is a 1-year follow-up of a sample of teachers who were originally selected for the Teacher Questionnaire in the Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS), an integrated set of surveys of public and private schools. There have been three data cycles for the SASS, and three for the TFS. The data in this report links responses from the 1994-1995 school year to characteristics of those same teachers who participated in the 1993-1994 SASS. This data file user's manual enables the user to access and understand the public use files of the TFS for 1994-1995. The guide contains these 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 (13) "User Notes and Comments." Five appendixes, representing the majority of the document, contain the questionnaires for current and former teachers, the crosswalk for previous surveys, industry and occupation codes, and the public-use codebook.
