Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN) : Generalized Anxiety Disorder (Primary Caregiver), Wave 2, 1997-2000( )

159 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 1,827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN) was a large-scale, interdisciplinary study of how families, schools, and neighborhoods affect child and adolescent development. One component of the PHDCN was the Longitudinal Cohort Study, which was a series of coordinated longitudinal studies that followed over 6,000 randomly selected children, adolescents, and young adults, and their primary caregivers over time to examine the changing circumstances of their lives, as well as the personal characteristics, that might lead them toward or away from a variety of antisocial behaviors. Numerous measures were administered to respondents to gauge various aspects of human development, including individual differences, as well as family, peer, and school influences. The primary caregiver version of the Generalized Anxiety Disorder instrument was administered to subjects' primary caregivers for Cohorts 3, 6, and 9. The instrument was adapted from the Anxiety module of the Diagnostic Interview Schedule for Children (DISC 4) and obtained information regarding subjects' worrying and anxiety ...

Federal Justice Statistics Program : Charges Filed Against Defendants in Criminal Cases in District Court -- Terminated, 1998 [United States]( )

143 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 1,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The data contain records of defendants in federal criminal cases filed in United States District Court during fiscal year 1994. The data were constructed from the Executive Office for United States Attorneys (EOUSA) Central System file.

The Central System data contain variables from the original EOUSA files as well as additional analysis variables, or "SAF" variables, that denote subsets of the data. These SAF variables are related to statistics reported in the Compendium of Federal Justice Statistics. Variables containing identifying information (e.g., name, Social Security Number) were replaced with blanks, and the day portions of date fields were also sanitized in order to protect the identities of individuals. These data are part of a series designed by the Urban Institute (Washington, DC) and the Bureau of Justice Statistics. Data and documentation were prepared by the Urban Institute. ...

79 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,040 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN) was a large-scale, interdisciplinary study of how families, schools, and neighborhoods affect child and adolescent development. One component of the PHDCN was the Longitudinal Cohort Study, which was a series of coordinated longitudinal studies that followed over 6,000 randomly selected children, adolescents, and young adults, and their primary caregivers over time to examine the changing circumstances of their lives, as well as the personal characteristics, that might lead them toward or away from a variety of antisocial behaviors. Numerous measures were administered to respondents to gauge various aspects of human development, including individual differences, as well as family, peer, and school influences. The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R) was a general test of intelligence, which David Wechsler, the test's author, defined as "the global capacity of the individual to act purposefully, to think rationally, and to deal effectively with his environment." In keeping with this definition of intelligence as an aggregate of mental aptitudes or abilities, the WISC-R has traditionally consisted of 13 subtests divided into two parts, verbal and performance. For this study, the WISC-R included definitions of words only. It was administered to Cohorts 6, 9, 12, and 15 ... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR13604
Uniform Crime Reporting Program Data [United States] : Arrests by Age, Sex, and Race, 1999 by United States( )

77 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These data provide information on the number of arrests reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program each month by police agencies in the United States. These arrest reports provide data on 43 offenses including violent crime, drug use, gambling, and larceny. The data received by ICPSR were structured as a hierarchical file containing, per reporting police agency, an agency header record, 1 to 12 monthly header records, and 1 to 43 detail offense records containing the counts of arrests by age, sex, and race for a particular offense. ICPSR restructured the original data to logical record length format with the agency and monthly header record variables copied onto the detail records. Consequently, each record contains arrest counts for a particular agency-month-offense

46 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN) was a large-scale, interdisciplinary study of how families, schools, and neighborhoods affect child and adolescent development. One component of the PHDCN was the Longitudinal Cohort Study, which was a series of coordinated longitudinal studies that followed over 6,000 randomly selected children, adolescents, and young adults, and their primary caregivers over time to examine the changing circumstances of their lives, as well as the personal characteristics, that might lead them toward or away from a variety of antisocial behaviors. Numerous measures were administered to respondents to gauge various aspects of human development, including individual differences, as well as family, peer, and school influences. Traditionally, the Stanford-Binet (SB) Intelligence Scale was a wide-range individual test, assessing intelligence from age two through the superior adult level. It was an age scale, requiring subjects to solve problems, give definitions, memorize new material, and use some visual-motor skills at various age levels. For this study, the SB included a vocabulary subtest consisting of providing both names of pictures and definitions of words. It was only administered to Cohort 3 ...

The principal purposes of this national longitudinal study of the higher education system in the United States are to describe the characteristics of new college freshmen and to explore the effects of college on students.

Other questions elicit demographic information, including sex, age, parental education and occupation, household income, race, religious preference, and state of birth. Specific questions asked of respondents in the 1978 survey included how well the students felt that their high school had prepared them in different academic areas, information regarding the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant (BEOG) and Guaranteed Student Loan (GSL) financial programs, and whether students considered themselves to be born-again Christians.
