Nebraska Annual Social Indicators Survey, 2000
SummaryThis project aims to survey and monitor quality of life in the state of Nebraska, covering topics such as the housing, health, recreation, occupation, family life, crime, among others. A set of core questions are repeated each year and additional questions are purchased by those interested in gathering additional data. It is conducted by the Bureau of Sociological Research of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in collaboration with state agencies, non-profits, educational and research organizations. The 2000 survey was conducted among residents of Nebraska on many topics of local and state interest including quality of life, recreation, healthcare, assisted living, employment, childcare, public policy, Nebraska roads, crime and human services system.
The ARDA has added five additional variables to the original data set to enhance the users' experience on our site.
Data FileCases: 1887
Weight Variable: PWEIGHT; HWEIGHT
Two weights were included. The first weight, called PWEIGHT, produces a representative sample of individuals 19 and over living in the state. PWEIGHT adjusts for region, sex and age bias and a correction factor to compensate for differential probability of selection of the respondent within households with varying numbers of adults present. The second weight, HWEIGHT, produces a representative sample at the household level. Since some households were underrepresented, some adjustment was needed to compensate.
