Why I chose NLS data

The NLSY contains unique information not available in many other longitudinal data sets. For example, it contains detailed questions about whether and how workers use the Internet to look for jobs. Another unique variable is the AFQT score which is a key measure of ability and proved to be instrumental in my own research.
