This is a hypothetical universe of schools in a given territorial unit, patterned off the apipop data available in the survey package.

fakeAPI

A data frame with 10000 observations on the following 8 variables.

uid

a numeric vector as a unique identifier for schools

schooltype

a character vector for school type. E = elementary school. M = middle school. H = high school

county

a character vector for the county, named after an Ohio State All-American. ``County'' incidence is weighted by how many All-American honors the Ohio State player had. It's my fake data. You make your own if you have a problem with it.
