What I learned from NLS data
Much of the course of adult life is determined during the critical period of late adolescence and early adulthood. The NLSY allowed me to better understand how these experiences affect health and career choices.
Why I chose NLS data
Very simple --- the NLSY was the only dataset that had information about determinants of key early life choices, like smoking behavior, grades, and AFQT scores.
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).
