What I learned from NLS data
The welfare participation and its impact on recipients' behaviors and life domains.
Why I chose NLS data
The NLS has a very rich collection of longitudinal data over a long period of time. It can be applied to understand intergenerational impact as long as long-term impact on the same individuals.
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).
