Title: Development of a Prototype System for Accessing Linked NCES data
Description: Recently, NCES began providing its survey data and tools through the Internet, a step which has greatly expanded accessibility to these data. However, both NCES internal staff and its customers have a further need for the ability to directly access "linked" data from multiple survey, multiple components within a survey, and multiple time points, for methodological and analytic purposes. This paper is a report of a project that assesses NCES' capabilities to support the dissemination of linked data.
