Why I chose NLS data
The NLSY97 offers crucial nationally representative data on disability from adolescence through emerging adulthood. The availability of this information--coupled with extensive family, education, and employment histories--is essential for researchers interested in understanding early life course characteristics and transitions among this population.
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).
