What I learned from NLS data
The broad finding from my research with NLS data is that parenting styles and practices are not stable throughout adolescence. Parenting styles and practices change, often substantially, during adolescence and those changes have important implications for developmental outcomes, especially delinquency.
Why I chose NLS data
I used NLS data for my research because it includes detailed, longitudinal information from both parents and children.
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).
