Description
  • Abstract

    The primary purpose of the State Nonfiscal Survey is to provide basic information on public elementary and secondary school students and staff for each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and outlying territories (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands). The database provides the following information on students and staff: general information (name, address, and telephone number of the state education agency), staffing information (number of FTEs on the instructional staff, guidance counselor staff, library staff, support staff, and administrative staff), and student information (membership counts by grade, counts of high school completers, counts of high school completers by racial/ethnic breakouts, and breakouts for dropouts by grade, sex, race).

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes..

Collection Mode
  • (1) Part 2, Imputed Data, is a different version of the data in Part 1, Reported Data. The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) imputed and adjusted some reported values in order to create a data file (Part 2) that more accurately reflects student and staff counts and improves comparability between states. Imputations are defined as cases where the missing value is not reported at all, indicating that subtotals for the category are under-reported. An imputation by NCES assigns a value to the missing item, and the subtotals containing this item increase by the amount of the imputation. Imputations and adjustments were performed on the 50 states and Washington, DC, only. Since all states and Washington, DC, reported data in this survey, these imputations and adjustments were implemented to correct for item nonresponse only. This process consisted of several stages and steps, and varied as to the nature of the missing data. No adjustments or imputations were made to high school graduates or other high school completer categories, nor were any adjustments or imputations performed on the race/ethnicity data. (2) The Instruction Manual that is included with this data collection also applies to COMMON CORE OF DATA: PUBLIC EDUCATION AGENCY UNIVERSE, 1995-1996 (ICPSR 2468) and COMMON CORE OF DATA: PUBLIC SCHOOL UNIVERSE, 1995-1996 (ICPSR 2470).
