Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN) : Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised, Wave 1, 1994-1997 by Felton Earls( )

241 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 3,006 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. One such measure was the Health Screen, used to obtain the general health condition of the subjects. It was administered to subjects' caregivers for Cohorts 0 to 15 and to the subjects, themselves, for Cohort 18 and it was taken from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey. The Wave 2 instrument contained a more detailed health history than the Wave 1 instrument used in PROJECT ON HUMAN DEVELOPMENT IN CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOODS (PHDCN): HEALTH SCREEN, WAVE 1, 1994-1997 (ICPSR 13593). The Wave 2 instrument included information regarding lifetime illnesses and past-year health ... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR13629
Federal Justice Statistics Program : Charges Filed Against Defendants in Criminal Cases in District Court -- Terminated, 1998 [United States]( )

160 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 1,693 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. According to the EOUSA, the United States attorneys conduct approximately 95 percent of the prosecutions handled by the Department of Justice. 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. ...

Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN) : Infant Assessment Unit, Wave 1, 1995-1997 by Felton Earls( )

49 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 882 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 Systematic Social Observation (SSO). The SSO was a standardized approach for directly observing the physical, social, and economic characteristics of neighborhoods, one block at a time. In 1995, the PHDCN initiated a combined person-based and videotaped approach to collecting systematic observations of neighborhoods. Eighty of the 343 Neighborhood Clusters were used in this study. Once the sampling was complete, the block face (the block segment on one side of the street) became the unit of observation. Using videotape and observer logs, data were collected in the 80 sampled Chicago neighborhoods. Only a sample of block faces were selected for coding due to budget expenses. The National Opinion Research Center (NORC) collected the data for the SSO. Between June and October of 1995, trained observers from NORC drove a sports utility vehicle down every block within the 80 sampled neighborhoods. A videographer videotaped both sides of each block, while two observers recorded characteristics of each block face on observer logs. Further coding of the videotapes and observer logs was conducted by NORC staff ... Cf.: http://dx.doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR13578
Common Core of Data : Public School Districts, 1981-1982 by National Center for Education Statistics( )

75 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Federal Justice Statistics Program : Statutes for Counts of Conviction for Defendants Sentenced Under the Sentencing Reform Act, 1999 [United States]( )

59 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These data contain records of statutes for each count of conviction for criminal defendants who were sentenced pursuant to provisions of the Sentencing Reform Act (SRA) of 1984 and reported to the United States Sentencing Commission (USSC) during fiscal year 1999. The data are one of two supplementary files that should be used in conjunction with the primary analysis file, which contains records for all defendants sentenced under the guidelines. These data can be linked to the primary analysis file using the unique identifier variable USSCIDN. The number of records for a defendant in the current data corresponds to the total number of counts of conviction for that defendant, and that total is recorded in the NOCOUNT variable. As an example, if a defendant has five counts of conviction (NOCOUNT=5), he or she will have five records in the current data. As it is possible for defendants to have multiple statutes applying to a single count of conviction, up to three statutes (STA1 - STA3) are recorded for each count of conviction. The data were obtained from the United States Sentencing Commission's Office of Policy Analysis' (OPA) Standardized Research Data File. 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. ...

Federal Justice Statistics Program : Defendants in Federal Criminal Cases Filed in District Court, 1994 [United States]( )

53 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The data contain records of defendants in criminal cases filed in United States District Court before or during fiscal year 1994 and still pending as of year-end. The data were constructed from the Administrative Office of the United States District Courts' (AOUSC) criminal file. Defendants in criminal cases may be either individuals or corporations. There is one record for each defendant in each case filed. Included in the records are data from court proceedings and offense codes for up to five offenses charged at the time the case was filed. (The most serious charge at termination may differ from the most serious charge at case filing, due to plea bargaining or action of the judge or jury.) In a case with multiple charges against the defendant, a "most serious" offense charge is determined by a hierarchy of offenses based on statutory maximum penalties associated with the charges. The data file contains variables from the original AOUSC 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, Tables 4.1-4.5 and 5.1-5.6. 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. ...

Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN) : My Exposure to Violence (Primary Caregiver), Wave 2, 1997-2000( )

23 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 432 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. One of the measures composing the Longitudinal Cohort Study was the Home and Life Interview. The Home and Life Interview was a restructured interview based on the Home Observation for Measurement of the Environment (HOME) inventory used in Wave 1. The Home and Life Interview, like the HOME inventory, sought to observe the developmental environment in which children belonging to the Longitudinal Cohort Study sample were raised. The Home and Life Interview was designed to capture the absence or presence of certain cognitive stimuli, including varied learning experiences and diverse educational materials. The Home and Life Interview also measured the extent and nature of the interactions that occurred between the subject and his or her primary caregiver. In contrast to Wave 1, particular emphasis was placed on evaluating the relationship between the subject and the subject's father or, in the father's absence, a male father figure. An important feature of the Wave 1 HOME inventory was the data collected that described the interior and exterior conditions of the respondent's home and neighborhood. Simi ...

28 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. For each wave of this survey, each student completes a questionnaire during freshman orientation or registration that asks for information on academic skills and preparation, high school activities and experiences, educational and career plans, majors and careers, student values, and financing college. 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. Respondents were also asked to list their probable career and their assessments of achieving certain goals during their college years, as well as their predictions about what opportunities they might have in the future ...
