What I learned from NLS data
The body of work I did provided some of the best estimates available on the determinants of success (or the lack thereof) of job search for white and minority youth, based on some outstanding questions on search plus detailed data on their subsequent employment outcomes.
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).
