Version V1

This dataset combines three existing datasets: STUDENT-PARENT SOCIALIZATION STUDY, 1965 (ICPSR 7286), YOUTH-PARENT SOCIALIZATION PANEL STUDY, 1965-1997: FOUR WAVES COMBINED (ICPSR 4037), and STUDY OF POLITICAL SOCIALIZATION: PARENT-CHILD PAIRS BASED ON SURVEY OF YOUTH PANEL AND THEIR OFFSPRING, 1997 (ICPSR 4024). It is designed for the multi-generational study of the grandparents, parents, and children in American families. The grandparents and parents were originally interviewed in 1965 as a nationally-representative sample, and the parents were interviewed again in 1973, 1982, and 1997. In addition, the children of these parents were interviewed in 1997. Each child's 1997 data has been merged with their parent's data and their corresponding grandparent's data. Since two, one, or zero grandparents were interviewed for each parent in 1965, there may be one or two entries per child.
