The School District Data Book (SDDB) is an education database and information system. It contains an extensive set of data on children, their households, and the nation's school systems. Under the sponsorship of the National Center for Education Statistics, the Bureau of the Census has produced special tabulation files using the basic record files of the 1990 Census of Population and Housing by school district. These tabulation files contain aggregated data describing attributes of children and households in school districts. Data are organized by seven types of tabulation records: (1) characteristics of all households, (2) characteristics of all persons, (3) characteristics of households with children, (4) characteristics of parents living with children, (5) children's household characteristics, (6) children's parents' characteristics, and (7) children's own characteristics.

2006-01-12 All files were removed from dataset 139 and flagged as study-level files, so that they will accompany all downloads.

2001-06-27 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:

  • Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.

2006-01-12 All files were removed from dataset 138 and flagged as study-level files, so that they will accompany all downloads.

2006-10-27 Variable names were corrected in SAS and SPSS setup files. The processing note in the codebook was also updated to reflect the corrections.

2002-05-29 Seventeen additional datasets (Parts 140-156) were added to the collection, including data for two states previously not covered -- Vermont and Washington -- and additional data for Arkansas, California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Texas.

2006-01-12 All files were removed from dataset 137 and flagged as study-level files, so that they will accompany all downloads.
