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. One such measure was the Discrimination survey. It was administered to subjects' primary caregivers in Cohorts 0, 3, 6, 9, and 12. It was drawn from the Puerto Rican Adolescent Survey and addressed both actual instances of discrimination and fear of this occurring in specific settings. These questions also appear in the Personal Identity instrument used with older subjects and young adults (PROJECT ON HUMAN DEVELOPMENT IN CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOODS (PHDCN): IDENTITY-PERSONAL, WAVE 3, 2000-2002 [ICPSR 13717]) ...

Federal Justice Statistics Program : Charges Filed Against Defendants in Criminal Cases in District Court -- Terminated, 2000 [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. 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) : Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised, Wave 1, 1994-1997 by Felton Earls( )

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, 1998 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 (FBI) Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program each month by police agencies in the United States. Although not as well known as the "Crimes Known to the Police" data drawn from the Uniform Crime Report's Return A form, the arrest reports by age, sex, and race provide valuable data on 43 offenses including violent, drug, gambling, and larceny crimes. The data received by ICPSR were structured as a hierarchical file containing (per reporting police agency) an agency header record, and 1 to 12 monthly header reports, 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 a rectangular format

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 Family Structure and Health History assessment, administered to either the primary caregivers of subjects belonging to Cohorts 0 to 15, or to the subjects belonging to Cohort 18.

Federal Justice Statistics Program : Defendants in Federal Criminal Cases in District Court -- Pending, 2004 [United States]( )

63 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The data contain records of defendants in criminal cases filed in United States District Court before or during fiscal year 2004 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. ...

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, Tables 1.2-1.5. 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.

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

54 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 555 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. ...

An appeal can be filed by the government or the offender, and the appellant can appeal the sentence, the verdict, or both sentence and verdict. 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 6.1-6.5.

23 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 423 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 parent-report version of the Exposure to Violence. For Wave 2, a much more detailed version of the instrument than was used in Wave 1 was developed to assess exposure to violence. This detailed parent-report instrument was administered to Cohorts 0 to 15 and obtained information regarding the subject's lifetime and past year exposure to violent events. The parent-report instrument is complemented by the subject self-report instrument, PROJECT ON HUMAN DEVELOPMENT IN CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOODS (PHDCN): MY EXPOSURE TO VIOLENCE (SUBJECT), WAVE 2, 1997-2000 (ICPSR 13617) ...

30 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 395 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 ...
