NLS Annotated Bibliography. 1968-1994 Edition. The National Longitudinal Surveys of Labor Market Experience.
Fahy, Terry W., Ed.
The National Longitudinal Surveys (NLS), sponsored by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, are a set of surveys each of which has gathered information at multiple points in time on the labor market experiences of five groups of men and women since the mid-1960s. Each group of at least 5,000 persons was selected to be representative of all U.S. citizens born during a given time period such that conclusions drawn about the sample group would be generalizable to the experiences of the larger population. This NLS bibliography is the result of an ongoing effort to maintain and provide the public with an up-to-date record of research based on data from the NLS. This year's edition contains approximately 2,400 summaries of NLS-based journal articles, working papers, and dissertations that have been published during the past 25 years. It couples newly found research for the current year with entries from both the initial bibliography published in 1985 and the yearly updates that have been published since 1986. The main body of this publication contains NLS research arranged alphabetically by primary author's last name. Entries are complete with citation, abstract, specification of the NLS cohort or cohorts used in the research, and an identification number for easy referencing. Four indexes are provided: descriptor or keyword; title; NLS cohort; and primary or secondary authors. (KC)
