What I learned from NLS data
I learned about the value of longitudinal research data and the difficulty in collecting such data.
Why I chose NLS data
I went to work for the Center for Human Resource Research at Ohio State University that conducted the NLS surveys for the BLS.
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).
