Addendum: NLSY97 Post-Secondary Data and Transcript Data Files Now Available

National Longitudinal Survey of Youth - 1997 Cohort

Addendum: NLSY97 Post-Secondary Data and Transcript Data Files Now Available

1). A data release of NLSY97 Postsecondary student-by-term level and student level data is now available for public use. The student-by-term level data include all college terms for a student when the degree reported in that term is an Associate's, a Bachelor's, or a joint Bachelor's/ Master's degree. The student level data is a youth-level file that summarizes these term information. Institutions are identified using the non-disclosive NEWSCH_PUBID values that are youth-specific but not meaningful across youths.

Two SAS data files and associated documentation are available as a zip file. These data are expected to be available for download through NLS Investigator in early 2015.

2). A data release of NLSY97 Postsecondary Transcript data is now available in the NLSY97 dataset. These data include a youth-level file with selected transcript-related data, as well as course and term-level files with variables pertaining to course enrollment. See Appendix 12 for details.
