Number of schools per district (AG_NOSC2): A created categorical variable based on the continuous variable that identifies the number of public schools per school district, after frame collapsing procedure.

Number of teachers in public school districts who were dismissed or did not have their contracts renewed: A variable created for this analysis by adding D0318— the number of teachers without tenure in public school districts who were dismissed or did not have their contracts renewed— and D0319— the number of teachers with tenure in public school districts who were dismissed or did not have their contracts renewed.

Percentage of students in district approved for the National School Lunch Program (NSLAPP_D): NSLAPP_D is a continuous variable created by dividing the number of students approved for free or reduced-price lunches (D0287) by the total number of K-12 grade students enrolled among districts approved for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) (D0295). Districts that did not participate in the NSLP have valid skip values.
