Principal Investigator(s): Hauser, Robert M., University of Wisconsin-Madison. Department of Sociology
The Wisconsin Longitudinal Study (WLS) is a long-term study of a random sample of 10,317 men and women who graduated from Wisconsin high schools in 1957. The WLS provides an opportunity to study the life course, intergenerational transfers and relationships, family functioning, physical and mental health and well-being, and morbidity and mortality from late adolescence through 2008. WLS also covers social background, youthful aspirations, schooling, military service, labor market experiences, family characteristics, and retirement. Data for this wave of new interviews are expected to be available in 2013.
