Mental Retardation, v39 n5 p351-67 Oct 2001

Sociodemographic variables were also strongly associated with the proportion of students identified. A logistical regression model that included sociodemographic predictors was significantly better than models with gender and race alone. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
