This chapter examines employment patterns of youths using data from the first interview of the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 (NLSY97). The NLSY97 was designed specifically to collect a wide range of information on youths in the United States. It provides insight into their labor market experiences, demographic and family characteristics, and participation in school-to-work programs, as well as many other aspects of their lives. The NLSY97 provides an in-depth focus on a cohort of youths who were between the ages of 12 and 16 on December 31, 1996. The first interview will be followed by annual interviews to develop longitudinal data. NLSY97 data complement data from the Current Population Survey (CPS), a monthly survey of households that provides data on trends over time but does not track specific age cohorts. CPS information on employment trends of youths aged 15 to 17 is described in Chapter 4.

This chapter examines the relationship between youths' work activities while in school and their future educational attainment and labor market success. It begins with an overview of the economics literature concerning possible impacts. This overview is followed by an analysis of the most recent data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979 (NLSY79). By following the lives of the NLSY79 respondents over the last 20 years, this survey permits one to describe the relationship between the number of hours and weeks of work during school months while aged 16 and 17, and later outcomes in terms of college attendance, weeks worked each year, and the number of jobs held from age 18 through 30. However, as implied by the literature review, this relationship cannot be interpreted as showing cause and effect.
