Abdin Noboa

Version V1

This dataset is a slight modification of the original Hispanic Scholars Survey, a survey of all living Spanish surnamed United States doctorate recipients from the beginning of record-keeping by higher education institution to 1973. The study was conducted by Abdin Noboa, director of the Latino Institute Research Division in Reston, Virginia. The survey was funded by Aspira of America with additional support from the Puerto Rican Migration Research Consortium. Modifications made to the original dataset include the creation of an OSIRIS dictionary and the alteration of the card-image format to an OSIRIS (LRECL) dataset structure. Respondents were asked to provide information on degrees attained and to rate the personal importance of their academic contributions, financial and educational status, family life, and social life. They were also asked about their childhoods and the importance of education in their childhoods. Other variables include types of financial support respondents received while pursuing their post-secondary degrees and satisfaction with present occupation. Demographic information on respondents includes age, sex, occupation, marital status and history, birthplace, and parents' birthplace, occupation, and educational level.
