Scope of Study
Date of Collection:
Unit of Observation:
All household residents aged 12 to 16 as of December 31,
1996, in the United States.
Data Collection Notes:
information pertaining to the NLSY97 can be found at the
Bureau of Labor Statistics
Web site for NLS497.
The NLSY97 cohort comprises two independent probability samples: a cross-sectional sample and an oversample of black and/or Hispanic or Latino respondents. The cohort was selected using these two samples to meet the survey design requirement of providing sufficient numbers of black and Hispanic or Latino respondents for statistical analysis.
The NLSY97 cohort was selected in two phases. In the first phase, a list of housing units for the cross-sectional sample and the oversample was derived from two independently selected, stratified multistage area probability samples. This ensured an accurate representation of different sections of the population defined by race, income, region, and other factors. In the second phase, subsamples of the eligible persons identified in the first phase were selected for interview.
Longitudinal: Cohort/ Event-based
Mode of Data Collection:
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of
disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major
statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to
these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
Created variable labels and/or value labels.
Standardized missing values.
Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
