NCES Statistical Standards. NCES 2003-601
National Center for Education Statistics
This report contains the 2002 revised statistical standards and guidelines for the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), the principal statistical agency within the U.S. Department of Education. The primary goal is to provide high quality, reliable, useful, and informative statistical information to public policy decision-makers and to the general public. Thus, most of these standards and guidelines are primarily geared toward fulfilling that goal. In particular, the standards and guidelines presented in this report are intended for use by NCES staff and contractors to guide them in their data collection, analysis, and dissemination activities. These standards and guidelines are also intended to present a clear statement for data users regarding how data should be collected in NCES surveys, and the limits of acceptable applications and use. Beyond these immediate uses, we hope that other organizations involved in similar public endeavors will find the contents of some of these standards and guidelines useful in their work as well. All users of these standards and guidelines should be cognizant of the fact that the contents of this document are continually being reviewed for technological and statistical advances. The following are appended: (1) Race and Ethnicity; (2) Imputation; (3) Tabular Guidelines; and (4) Survey Titles. A glossary is also included.
