For sample children ages 5-17 who are currently in school or on vacation and are in the first grade or higher, STUDRANK reports what kind of a student the respondent feels the sample child is. Response categories ranked the sample child's performance relative to other students in the class.

STUDRANK is part of the Child Health supplement, first released in 1981. This supplement includes a number of questions on child's schooling. For more information and related variables, please see GOSCHOOLEV, or use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
