Comments: This study is on ICPSR Periodic Release 97003. The Periodic Release CD-ROM is a product designed for use on a Windows- or DOS-based personal computer and is intended for use as a means of data distribution. It may also be used within the Macintosh environment utilizing either system 7.0 and above or system 6.08 and the appropriate PC emulation software. The CD-ROM does not contain software for text or data searches, extraction or analyses. The files with the .EXE extension are self extracting files that were generated using Info-ZIP's ZIP compressor/archiver and PKWARE's ZIP2EXE utility for generating self-extracting files. Self-extracting files allow PC users to easily and quickly decompress and transfer the files to their equipment, usually a hard disk, without the need to install any extraction software locally. Files with .PDF extensions are provided as an electronic image file in Portable Document File (PDF) format. The PDF format was developed by Adobe Systems Incorporated and can be accessed using the Adobe Acrobat Reader. A copy of Acrobat Reader can be downloaded from the Adobe Systems Incorporated Website at: 7/08 This CD-Rom is superseded because this study is available from ICPSR Direct.

Abstract: This dataset contains records for each public elementary and secondary education agency in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and United States territories (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands) for 1993-1994. Data were reported to the Bureau of the Census for the National Center for Education Statistics by the state education agencies. Each record provides state and federal ID numbers, name, address, and telephone number of the agency, county name and FIPS code, agency type code, student counts, graduates and other completers counts, and other codes for selected characteristics of the agency. Grade span, number of schools operated by the agency, and number of classroom teachers were also aggregated.
