What I learned from NLS data
I was the research assistant for a research project creating new variables and using data from the NLSY79. My dissertation and the subsequent post-PhD career have used various datasets of NLS.
Why I chose NLS data
Multiple cohort-based data; many years of follow-up; up to 3 generations with longitudinal data; topics of my research interest
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).
