This dataset is designed for teaching probit regression. The dataset is a subset of data derived from the 2007 School Readiness Survey conducted as part of the National Household Education Surveys program operated by the National Center for Education Statistics in the U.S. Department of Education. It looks specifically at whether or not young children know all or most of the letters of the alphabet and whether that is predicted by their TV viewing, their age, and whether their parents read to them. The dataset file is accompanied by a Teaching Guide, a Student Guide, and a How-to Guide for Stata. The Student Guide and data curation was done by the Odum Institute; the How-to Guide was coauthored by Abigail-Kate Reid and Nick Allum.
