Codebook for High School District Module Wisconsin High School District Information for 1954-1957 This data set was prepared by Deena Ackerman & Craig Olson. See Appendix B cor723.asc for details of construction and more information about selected variables. The file hsdistrict contains one record for each of the 326 districts. This file is available as a SAS permanent data file, a Stata data file and an SPSS data file. Value labels are included in the Stata and SPSS save files. The codebook for hsdistrict follows as part of this document. The variable discode in wls57_2007 can be matched with the variable discode in hsdistrict data set to join selected variables from hisdistrict to selected variables from wls57_2007. NOTES ON READING THIS CODEBOOK This codebook is an edited version of the codebook generated by Stata 6 and is structured as follows: - The type of variable, range, number of unique values (324 for all variables), missing value code, mean, and standard deviation for each variable appear below the variable description. - To the right of this is the units for the variable and the number of values coded missing. Units appears as a 1 if the variable is an integer and as a 1 followed by a decimal point and a zero for each decimal place the variable has. (Note that this is a slightly different scheme from that of Stata). Number of cases coded missing appears in the form number of missing out of 324 (total number of cases). - Below this is the percentile breakdown for the variable. This provides a more detailed look at the distribution of the variable. The first number in the percentile section appears below the heading 10% and is the value that 10% of the cases for that variable fall below. The number appearing under the 25% heading is the value that 25% of the cases for that variable fall below, and so forth. These variables are recorded for entire districts and not individual high s chools within districts. Thus the percentile distribution is more informative than the range for variables where the maximum value is much higher than the 90% percentile point, which occurs because a small number of school districts (such as Milwaukee and Madison) are much larger than the majority of school districts in the state. - The majority of variables also have a note below the percentile distribution. This provides further description of the variable and notes other information (particularly coding of missing values) that may be useful in analysis. Unless otherwise specified or a particular year is indicated for the variable, all variables are a mean for the district over the four years (or the number of years reported). district ---------------------------------------------------- district name type: string (str22), but longest is str21 unique values: 324 coded missing: 0 / 324 examples: warning: variable has embedded blanks discode ------------------------------------------------- disrict code number type: numeric (float) range: [1,342] units: 1 unique values: 324 coded missing: 0 / 324 mean: 176.978 std. dev: 97.4917 percentiles: 10% 25% 50% 75% 90% 41 94.5 178.5 261.5 310 NOTE: This is a unique district identifier that can be used to link the DPI data to the WLS data. en_b9_4 ---------------------------------------- enrolled male 9th grade 1954 type: numeric (float) range: [4,2980] units: 1 unique values: 107 coded missing: 2 / 324 missing value code: 9999 mean: 62.587 std. dev: 175.726 percentiles: 10% 25% 50% 75% 90% 15 21 33 55 99 NOTE: This variable is 1954 ninth grade male enrollment for the entire district not individual schools within the district.
