Why I chose NLS data
The NLSY97 and NLSY79 are great data sets to use to study all domains of the transition to adulthood in the U.S., and to compare outcomes across two cohorts.
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).
