The data were collected by Greaney and Kelleghan (1984), and reanalyzed by Raftery and Hout (1985, 1993). ### Attribute information * Sex: 1=male; 2=female. * DVRT (Drumcondra Verbal Reasoning Test Score). * Educational level attained * Leaving Certificate. 1 if Leaving Certificate not taken; 2 if taken. * Prestige score for father's occupation (calculated by Raftery and Hout, 1985). * Type of school: 1=secondary; 2=vocational; 9=primary terminal leaver. ### Relevant papers Greaney, V. and Kelleghan, T.
