1957 - Little's Subsample Survey

There are actually two 1957 surveys in the WLS data.  In April 1957,
Wisconsin seniors took a survey.  In October 1957, Professor Little followed
up with a 1/6 sample.  Later, Professor Sewell add another 1/6th sample of the 
April 1957 survey to Little's sample to form the WLS sample. Below is a 
citation and an excerpt of Little's work that explains the purpose and details 
of his follow-up survey.  

    Little, J. Kenneth.   September 1959.  "Explorations into the College 
    Plans and Experiences of High School Graduates: A State-Wide Inquiry." 
    University of Wisconsin, School of Education.

"In October and November, 1957, questionnaires were sent to the parents 
of the 5,675 graduates who were members of the "working sample." The 
purposes of this questionnaire were : (1) to learn whether the plans 
announced by the graduates in the spring had been followed or changed; 
and (2) to discover the desires and attitudes of parents regarding the 
education of their sons or daughters beyond high school, and about the 
value of college education in general. Replies were received from 2,780 
parents (48.9 per cent of the "working sample").

Since there was special interest in the parents of youth who had high 
potential for college training, an intensive effort was made to get 
complete coverage of the parents of this group. Graduates were 
considered to have high college potential if they ranked in the top 
one-fourth of their high school graduating class and also scored in the 
top one-fourth of Wisconsin high school seniors on the Henmon-Nelson 
Test of Mental Ability. By special follow-up procedures using mail, 
telephone, and personal visit, replies from 96.7 per cent of this group 
were obtained."
