Elementary and Secondary General Information System (ELSEGIS): Public School Universe Data, 1969-1970 Through 1972-1973 (ICPSR 2238)
Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Education. National Center for Education Statistics
This dataset contains records for each public elementary and secondary school in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and outlying areas (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands) for fall 1969 through fall 1972. The data provide information on the name, address, county, and district of the school, programs offered, and the number of pupils and teachers by organizational level of government control. School-by-school data were obtained through various procedures chosen by the state education agencies from options established by the National Center for Education Statistics.
These data are available only to users at ICPSR member institutions. Because you are not logged in, we cannot verify that you will be able to download these data.
