Description
  • Abstract

    This collection is a longitudinal study of a national sample of young people. The respondents were originally observed as high school juniors in 1973 by the American College Testing Program. The first follow-up by the Institute for Demographic and Economic Studies (IDES) took place in 1976 and the second IDES follow-up study was conducted in 1978-1979. The original study was concerned with the amount of information young people had about specific job characteristics and career planning activities. The two follow-up studies collected information on current living situation, work, education, military experience, activities since high school, demographic information, and future plans.
