School Characteristics - CRDC

The Fragile Families Civil Rights Data Collection Data on Public Schools Restricted Use Data Appendage contains school level data on public schools attended by focal children at the Year 9 and Year 15 follow-up interviews. All data on schools in the appendage was obtained from the U.S. Department of Education (ED) Civil Rights Data Collection (CRDC) surveys conducted biennially (every other school year) between 2009 and 2015. The CRDC collects data on school, student, and teacher characteristics used as indicators of educational opportunity. Information on students collected by CRDC are disaggregated by students’ gender, race/ethnicity, and disability status. School data available from the 2009-10 and 2011-12 CRDC surveys were merged to public schools attended by focal children at the Year 9 FFCWs survey. School data from the 2013-14 and 2015-16 surveys were merged to public schools attended by children at the Year 15 FFCWS survey. Because CRDC is a survey of public schools, no data in this appendage is available for focal children who attended private schools.
