The Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS:2002) tracks the educational and developmental experiences of a nationally representative sample of United States high school students who were sophomores in the spring of 2002. This First Look report provides a descriptive portrait of their postsecondary education experiences through the end of the 2012-13 academic year by using information obtained during the postsecondary transcript data collection conducted in 2013-14. It is important to note that many of the variables examined in this report may be related to one another, and complex interactions and relationships among the variables have not been explored. The variables presented here are just a small subset of those that can be examined with the ELS:2002 data; they were selected to demonstrate the range of information available from the study. The release of this report is intended to encourage more in-depth analysis of the ELS:2002 data using more sophisticated statistical methods. Appended are: (1) Standard Error Tables; and (2) Technical Notes and Methodology.
