Users should refer to the accompanying readme file for a brief description of the files available with this collection and consult the investigator(s) if further information is needed. Serial sexual assault is a pervasive problem: court record recidivism rates show that 10-15% of convicted sex offenders re-assault within five years and self-report studies suggest that 63-78% of males who have committed sexual assaults have raped more than one individual. The current study documents the scope of repeat sexual offending through a previously-unexplored method of documenting serial perpetration: DNA evidence in sexual assault kits (SAKs). Ultimately, the testing of N = 7,287 previously untested SAKs revealed n = 1,270 unique and identifiable perpetrators. When combined with information from lifetime criminal history records, 39.7% (n = 504) of this subsample of unique and identifiable perpetrators were found to be serial sexual offenders who committed, on average, 3.27 sexual assaults. This collection contains 10 SPSS files: ESCALATIONdata_2018-05-15.sav (1142 cases, 6 variables) Forensic_Outcomes_2018-04-03.sav (7287 cases, 7 variables) PERPdata_2018-04-03.sav (1424 cases, 12 variables) SAKdata_2018-04-03.sav (1675 cases, 6 variables) SAK_PERP_2018-04-03.sav (1691 cases, 12 variables) SSA_ARR_Arrests_Imputed_2018-09-03.sav (9826 cases, 24 variables) SSA_CHG_PA_Charges_Imputed_2018-09-03.sav (6052 cases, 24 variables) SSA_IDN_Offenders_2018-09-03.sav (1142 cases, 17 variables) SSA_INC_Incidents_Imputed_2018-09-03.sav (9550 cases, 16 variables) SSA_JUD_Judicial_Charges_Imputed_2018-09-03.sav (12522 cases, 30 variables) This collection includes demographic variables on offenders, including sex, race, age, and arrest region.

... This collection consists of taxi trip record data for yellow medallion taxis, street hail livery (SHL) green taxis, and for-hire vehicles (FHV) in New York City between 2009 and 2018. The yellow and green taxi trip records include fields capturing pick-up and drop-off dates/times, pick-up and drop-off locations, trip distances, itemized fares, rate types, payment types, and driver-reported passenger counts. The data were collected and provided to the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) by technology providers authorized under the Taxicab and Livery Passenger Enhancement Programs (TPEP/LPEP). The trip data was not created by the TLC, and TLC makes no representations as to the accuracy of these data. The For-Hire Vehicle ("FHV") trip records include fields capturing the dispatching base license number and the pick-up date, time, and taxi zone location ID. These records were generated from the FHV Trip Record submissions made by bases. Note: The TLC publishes base trip record data as submitted by the bases, and cannot guarantee or confirm their accuracy or completeness. Therefore, this may not represent the total amount of trips dispatched by all TLC-licensed bases. The TLC performs routine reviews of the records and takes enforcement actions when necessary to ensure, to the extent possible, complete and accurate information. These data are publically available from the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission website.

... The current study used experimental methods in which adults with full-time jobs evaluated an organization that included information about the percentage of women in top management (53%, 23%, or 3%). The results showed that women were more attracted than men to an organization with the highest levels of women in top management (53% of management). The results also showed that women perceived more fairness than did men for the condition with women representing 53% of management. Women also perceived less fairness than did male participants when women only represented 3% of top management. The current research provides important implications that can inform organizations' efforts to attract women. In particular, the current research suggests that women use information about the sex composition of a company's top management positions, and that this information influences organizational attraction because they perceive such organizations to be fair for women.

... This study used manipulations of individuation (individuated vs. non-individuated) and goal type (agentic vs. communal) to examine STEM professors' receptiveness toward male and female prospective students' email requests for meetings. Non-individuated students simply sent a meeting request; individuated students provided an additional statement highlighting their research experience. Agentic goal types focused on stereotypically "male" traits such as agency and leadership, and communal goal types focused on stereotypically "female" traits such as helping and serving. Emails were sent to a sample of 1,879 STEM professors in the United States who had previously recommended their female students for a career development workshop.

The Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey (CLHLS) provides information on health status and quality of life of the elderly aged 65 and older in 22 provinces of China in the period 2002 to 2005. The study was conducted to shed light on the determinants of healthy human longevity and advanced age mortality. To this end, data were collected on a large percentage of the oldest population, including centenarian and nonagenarian; the CLHLS provides information on the health, socioeconomic characteristics, family, lifestyle, and demographic profile of this aged population. Data are provided on respondents' health conditions, daily functioning, self-perceptions of health status and quality of life, life satisfaction, mental attitude, and feelings about aging. Respondents were asked about their diet and nutrition, use of medical services, and drinking and smoking habits, including how long ago they quit either or both. They were also asked about their physical activities, reading habits, television viewing, and religious activities, and were tested for motor skills, memory, and visual functioning. In order to ascertain their current state of health, respondents were asked if they suffered from such health conditions as hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, emphysema, asthma, tuberculosis, cataracts, glaucoma, gastric or duodenal ulcer, arthritis, Parkinson's disease, bedsores, or other chronic diseases. Respondents were further queried about assistance with bathing, dressing, toileting, or feeding, and who provided help in times of illness. Other questions focused on siblings, parents, and children, the frequency of family visits, and the distance lived from each other. Demographic and background variables include age, sex, ethnicity, place of birth, marital history and status, history of childbirth, living arrangements, education, main occupation before age 60, and sources of financial support.

Additional information about the Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey as well as study design can be found at the Center for the Study of Aging and Human Development Web site. The CLHLS community datasets are auxiliary to the follow-up datasets of Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey (CLHLS) during the seven waves (1998, 2000, 2002, 2005, 2008, 2011, and 2014), which were collected by the Center for Healthy Aging and Development Studies (CHADS) of National School of Development at Peking University from a wide variety of publicly issued statistical yearbooks in China. The 1998-2014 CLHLS community datasets are based on the county-level areas where the elderly respondents of the same waves are living, which covers 23 provinces and more than 860 counties/districts. The CLHLS community datasets contain information about the geographical environment, population, economic conditions, social welfare statistics, etc. of province-level areas where the elderly respondents are living.

... The primary purpose of the Identity Theft Supplement (ITS) is to measure the prevalence of identity theft among persons, the characteristics of identity theft victims, and patterns of reporting to the police, credit bureaus, and other authorities. The ITS was also designed to collect important characteristics of identity theft such as how the victim's personal information was obtained; the physical, emotional and financial impact on victims; offender information; and the measures people take to avoid or minimize their risk of becoming an identity theft victim. The information is intended for use by policymakers, academic researchers, practitioners at the Federal, state and local levels, and special interest groups who are concerned with identity theft to make informed decisions concerning policies and programs. Responses are linked to the NCVS survey instrument responses for a more complete understanding of the individual's circumstances. The 2016 Identity Theft Supplement (ITS) was the fourth implementation of this supplement to the annual NCVS to obtain specific information about identity theft-related victimization on a national level. Since the ITS is a supplement to the NCVS, it is conducted under the authority of title 42, United States Code, sections 3732. Only Census employees sworn to preserve confidentiality may see the completed questionnaires.
