Why I chose NLS data
The large number of full and half-siblings in the NLSY79 and the richness of information available on the participants provides a unique alternative to standard twin methods for modeling quantitative genetic and environmental influences on individual differences in child development.
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).
