Can you help me find a public-use codebook for Baccalaureate and Beyond (B&B)and the National Education Longitudinal Study (NELS)?


We have the CD-ROM for NELS 1988-2000. It is in my office (CD #256).

An alternative source for the codebook for the NELS data is:


You can explore the public use data (both NELS and B&B) through DAS Online:


Select the survey you want to explore in the Box above "Accessing the DAS to Create Tables".

You'll be prompted for a data use agreement and then taken to the software application.

The documentation for Baccalaureate and Beyond is not so readily available. You can access a variable list via the DAS site and examine the variables one by one.

I am exploring further options for B&B.
