The National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972: Annotated Bibliography of Studies, 1980-1992.
Maline, Mindi S., Comp.
The National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972 (NLS-72) is the "grandmother" of the longitudinal studies designed and conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics, and is probably the richest archive ever assembled on a generation of Americans. Participants were selected as high school seniors in 1972 and were followed through postsecondary transcripts in 1984. In 1981, Samuel Peng assembled a bibliography of studies describing or using NLS-72 data. This publication extends Peng's work by describing the considerable number of studies published since the first bibliography. Works are arranged in the following categories: (1) general descriptions (data sets and populations); (2) methodology; (3) work (employment); (4) secondary education; (5) postsecondary education; (6) educational and occupational aspirations; (7) educational and occupational attainment; (8) gender and racial-ethnic differences; (9) vocational technical and vocational education; (10) teachers; (11) marriage, family, and life transitions; (12) economics of education; (13) testing; (14) others; and (15) tabulations. In all, 259 sources are listed and annotated with a brief description of the study and its methodology. Publication of this document coincides roughly with the release of an optical data disk with the NLS-72 data archive, manuals, and sample computer programs. (SLD)
