A Research Agenda for the National Longitudinal Surveys of Labor Market Experience: Report on the Social Science Research Council's Conference on the National Longitudinal Surveys, October, 1977. Parts I to IV.
Social Science Research Council, Washington, DC. Center for Coordination of Research on Social Indicators.
This report of the Social Science Research Council's Conference on the National Longitudinal Surveys of Labor Market Experience (NLS) begins with a description of the rationale and background for the conference. In the first of four parts, the conference objectives are stated: (1) review previous research based on the National Longitudinal Surveys (NLS), (2) identify new directions, (3) suggest analytic strategies, and (4) comment on survey content. The NLS function is described as that of analyzing variation in labor market behavior with emphasis given to policy-relevant research issues. Section 2 overviews the conference proceedings and focuses on potential NLS research issues in the areas of work-family relationships, labor-force socialization, structural variables, and methodological issues. Section 3 contains documentation relating to the conference--correspondence, the program, and a participants' list. Section 4 contains a collection of the papers and memoranda presented at the conference. Papers include "Labor Force Issues Circa 1984," by Harold W. Watts and Felicity Skidmore; "Individual Histories as Units of Analysis in Longitudinal Surveys," by Burton Singer; "Childrearing, Work and Welfare: Research Issues," by Harriet B. Presser; and "Events as Units of Analysis in Life History Studies," by Natalie Rogoff Ramsoy and Sten-Erik Clausen. Six memoranda are also presented.
