Status of environmental measures by country

  1. Classroom status - close to complete in all countries
  2. Parental education - needs work
    • Multiple iterations for projects at different timepoints (Robin Peterson, Anne Bernard)
    • Different category reference points in different countries
    • Change in educational status over IT-F4 interval not in file
  3. READ survey - 80% or more in all countries but Sweden
  4. PRINT survey - 80% or more in all countries but Sweden
  5. Parental TOWRE - Approximately 60% for fathers and mothers in AUS, 30% fathers & 80% mothers in CO, no data from Scandinavia

Open Questions

  1. What variables can be added to the environmental file?
    • School information from AUS
    • Occupation codes from Emily Bullen's file (do not have raw files with occupation codes)
    • Children's book titles (items and/or # correct/ # incorrect) CO version book titles

What appears to be missing

  1. Occupation codes from Emily Bullen file from all sites
  2. Later demographic data from CO
