Date of Collection:
A total of 13,823 attorneys in Chicago, Illinois, had law
offices, were not retired, had graduated from law school more than one
year previous to the study, and were listed in SULLIVAN'S LAW
DICTIONARY FOR THE STATE OF ILLINOIS, 1974-1975, and/or the
MARTINDALE-HUBBELL LAW DICTIONARY.
Data Collection Notes:
(1) Variables 343 (Law School Attended), 349
(Religious Preference), 352 (Respondents Nationality), and 353
(Spouses Nationality) were recoded due to confidentiality concerns.
Values with counts less than 5 were collapsed into a "Recoded Other"
(100) value. (2) ICPSR has assigned missing value designations
according to the available documentation for this study. However, some
continuous variables have high and low values that may fall out of a
valid range. Users of the data should be aware of the possibility that
these values may not be valid.
A stratified probability sample with simple random
selection of elements within strata resulted in 1,024 attorneys.
Mode of Data Collection:
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of
disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major
statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to
these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
