Thailand: Thailand Data

Description Usage Format Source References Examples

Description

Data are from a national survey of primary education in Thailand, including information for 8,582 sixth graders nested within 411 schools (Raudenbush & Bhumirat, 1992). The outcome binary variable "rgi" indicates whether a pupil has repeated a grade during primary education (0=no, 1=yes). The predictor variables are: child's sex (0=male, 1=female) and child's pre-primary education (0=no, 1=yes). Every level-1 record corresponds to a student.
