Location Information for National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972 (NLS-72): Fifth Follow-Up Survey, 1986 Version 1

DOI

This study provides supplementary data for the NATIONAL LONGITUDINAL STUDY OF THE HIGH SCHOOL CLASS of 1972 (ICPSR 8085) that is not available in public-use files. The supplementary data is location information on respondents to the Fifth Follow-Up Survey of the NLS-72. The data file contains two variables: an individual identifier and state of residence (in 1986). The identifier allows researchers to link the location information to the public-use files for the Fifth Follow-Up Survey. By the time of the Fifth Follow-Up Survey (conducted in the Spring and Summer of 1986), the sample members averaged 32 years of age and had been out of high school for 14 years. These data were acquired for a project on the geographic mobility of college-educated workers in the United States. The project investigated the impact of attending college in a state and on the probability of locating in the state after college. Smallest Geographic Unit: state (1) Although the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) funded the the main NLS-72 project, they did not provide funding for assembling "location data" for the Fifth Follow-Up Survey. Rather, the NCES provided permission for NORC to provide the "location data" to the primary investigator. (2) The data can be linked to the Fifth Follow-Up Survey of the NLS-72 (ICPSR 8085).
