This study has two parts: a youth panel and a parent panel. High school students and their parents were interviewed in 1965 and reinterviewed in 1973. The panel study is designed to assess political continuity and change across time for two biologically-related generations and to explore life cycle, generational, and period effects. Analysis can be performed at the aggregate as well as the individual level. Because the two samples come from the same families, parent-offspring pairs can be formed (by matching I.D. numbers). At the core of the study are a number of standard political variables available at both time points. The 1973 wave includes a number of questions that capture the political and non-political histories of the respondent across the eight-year panel period. Also included in the 1973 data are a large number of variables dealing with perspectives on public policy issues. The 1965 youth wave schedule contains detailed questions about high school experiences, and both the youth and parental schedules treat familial relationships.
