Title: Response Variance in the 1994-95 Teacher Follow-up Survey
Description: The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) sponsors the Teacher Follow-up Survey (TFS), conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. The TFS provides information about teacher attrition. During TFS survey, The Census Bureau reinterviewed a subsample of the respondent teachers. The 1994-95 TFS reinterview focused on current teachers, who remained in teaching after they participated in the 1993-94 SASS. The TFS reinterview measured response variance in a subset of questions that includes 1) questions the NCES deemed critical; 2) questions suspected to be problematic; and 3) new questions not previously evaluated. This paper reports the finding of response variance.
