Education Master File

The CHNS Individual Education Master File contains information regarding education attained by survey individuals. As a longitudinal file, it contains multiple years of data for each individual.  An individual can have from 1 to 9 years of data as designated by the WAVE variable, which contains the survey years, 1989 to 2011.

This file consolidates individual education data from 13 survey files:

1989 1991 1993 1997 2000 2004 2006 2009 2011
C89HH1 C91HH3 C93HH4 C97HH4 C00HH6 C04ADULT

This file represents an extensive effort to clean the data by correcting inconsistencies in the A11 and A12 variables.  Both programmatic and manual correction procedures were used to clean the data based on reviewing all years of education data for an individual.

No effort was made to clean the A11A_93 or the A13 variables.
