Here are all the data sets used in the text, organized by chapter. Also included are computer syntax files, occasionally for Part 1, and consistently for Part 2

The NELS data are used throughout the book and thus have their own zip file. The other data sets are organized by chapter. If there is nothing listed for a chapter that means there are no unique data for it.

All data are stored as zip files. Here is a complete listing of the data sets and other files included in the zipped files: data sets in MR&B2.pdf

And here are the zipped files, by chapter:

**NELS data** (used throughout the text): MRB2_NELS.zip

Updated 1/30/16: **Data dictionary** for the NELS file. This is almost 500 pages long, but it includes all the information about each variable in the NELS data file, including the value labels. In word format. nels data dictionary inc value labels edited.docx

**Shorter version of the NELS data (updated 5/9/15)**: These file include only those NELS variables used in examples and exercises. The word file includes information about the various formats, plus Mplus syntax: n=1000,stud & par shorter 5 9 15 update.zip
