National Center for Education Statistics
The documentation for this provisional version 1a file of the National Center for Education Statistics' (NCES) Common Core of Data (CCD) Public Elementary/Secondary School Universe Survey for SY 2011-12, contains a brief description of the data collection, along with information required to understand and access the data file. The SY 2011-12 Public Elementary/Secondary School Universe file provides a directory of all schools that provide free public elementary and secondary education and characteristics of each school, including mailing address, location information, and geographic codes. The school universe file contains both categorical variables such as operational status and school type that describe the school as well as aggregated demographic variables such as counts of students attending the school by grade, race ethnicity and gender and the number of teachers. The school universe data are also useful to (1) chief officers of state education agencies, (2) policymakers in the executive and legislative branches of federal and state governments, (3) education policy and public policy researchers, (4) the press, and (5) citizens interested in information about public schools. The remainder of this document contains a user's guide and four appendices: (1) Record Layout for the Common Core of Data Public Elementary/Secondary School Universe Survey: School Year 2011-12; (2) Value Distribution, Field Frequencies, and Data Tables for the Common Core of Data Public Elementary/Secondary School Universe Survey: School Year 2011-12; (3) Glossary for the Common Core of Data: School Year 2011-12 and (4) State Notes for the Common Core of Data: School Year 2011-12.
