What I learned from NLS data
An important finding from my research using the NLS is that, all else equal, young women were no more likely to quit their jobs than young men were (Blau and Kahn, Industrial & Labor Relations Review, 1981).
Why I chose NLS data
I chose the NLS for my research because of its rich array of work and job search history information, which allowed to test job search theories and estimate differences in turnover propensities.
Ohio State University Center for Human Resource Research
This site was created at the Center for Human Resource Research (CHRR) at The Ohio State University to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the National Longitudinal Surveys (NLS). The NLS is a program of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. CHRR has conducted the NLS since the program began in 1965, in partnership with the U.S. Census Bureau (from 1965 to 2003) and NORC at the University of Chicago (from 1978 to the present).
