Finding estimates for pupil characteristics not directly measured in the National Pupil Database.
In the presentation I will discuss using the National Pupil Database (NPD) to answer questions that cannot be directly asked in the underlying administrative data. I will discuss two projects that set out to answer such ‘impossible’ questions: (1). What are the educational outcomes of refugee and asylum-seeking children? (2). How many children experience ‘off-rolling’ from secondary school? Neither status is collected in the data but we used narrowing strategies and probability-weighted analysis to begin answering these questions.
