ECLS-K Releases Kindergarten Through Eighth-grade Public-use Data

The National Center for Education Statistics, within the Institute of Education Sciences, has released the kindergarten through eighth-grade public-use data from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Kindergarten Class of 1998-99. This includes data from all seven rounds of the ECLS-K for all study children, as well as the teacher- and school-level files from the base year. The data provide a rich source of information about children's academic, socio-emotional, and physical development from the time they first enter kindergarten to eighth grade.  These data are available to download directly from the website:
An ECLS-K K-8 public-use DVD will also be available soon.  This DVD contains the same public-use data and data documentation, as well as an electronic code book (ECB) that facilitates navigation through the large number of variables available in the K-8 data.  An additional message will be sent when the DVD with the ECB is available.
