Data Description - Variable Definitions, Data, and Programs for 'Teachers, Students, and Academic Achievement'
Steven G. Rivkin, Eric A. Hanushek, John F. Kain

Description: This supplement to the paper, “Teachers, Schools, and Academic Achievement,” provides added technical details to the data, variable definitions and estimation. That paper has two major empirical sections: estimation of the variance in teacher quality and estimation of more traditional educational production functions. Each relies upon administrative data on students and teachers from the Texas Education Agency. The microdata are not currently available because of federal privacy regulations, but the aggregate data on school outcomes used in the estimation of the variance in teacher quality is available through this site. In addition to a description of the data and variables, this supplement also included all of the STATA do-files used for data construction and estimation.
