What I learned from NLS data
NLS was the first public use large dataset I worked with. It provided learning opportunities for me to engage in research using other public use large datasets, and kept my research moving.
Why I chose NLS data
I chose NLS for my first research using existing data because senior professors told me it was relatively easy to use. I found NLS the right choice for several of my research questions because the staff was amazingly helpful.
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).
