  • Abstract

    For this panel survey a national sample of high school seniors and their parents were interviewed in 1965, and twice later in 1973 and 1982. The survey gauges the impact of life-stage events and historical trends on the behaviors and attitudes of respondents. Each wave has a distinct focus. The 1965 data focus on high school experiences, while the 1973 data deal with the protest era. Data gathered in 1982 emphasize the maturing process and offer information relating to parental issues and family relationships. Other major areas of investigation include political participation, issue positions, group evaluations, civic orientations, personal change over time, stability in attitudes and behaviors over time, and partisanship and electoral behavior.

The original 1965 youth sample was chosen from a national probability sample of 97 secondary schools (including 11 non-public schools) selected with a probability proportionate to their size. Within each school, 15-21 randomly designated seniors were interviewed. In 1973, 1,119 of the original 1,669 youths who completed the 1965 interview were reinterviewed, and an additional 229 completed mailback questionnaires. In 1982, 958 youths were reinterviewed, and 82 completed mailback questionnaires. The 1965 parents were selected randomly such that for one-third of the students the fathers were interviewed, for another one-third the mothers were interviewed, and for the remaining third both parents were interviewed. In 1973 1,118 of the original 1,562 parents were reinterviewed, and 62 completed mailback questionnaires. In 1982, 816 parents were reinterviewed, and 82 completed mailback questionnaires.
Collection Mode
  • personal interviews, and self-enumerated forms

    The 1965 and 1973 waves of this collection are released through ICPSR under the title YOUTH-PARENT SOCIALIZATION PANEL STUDY, 1965-1973 (ICPSR 7779). Analysis of these data can be performed at both the aggregate and individual levels. Because the two samples come from the same families, parent-offspring pairs can be formed. A combined file for all three waves is available as YOUTH-PARENT SOCIALIZATION PANEL STUDY, 1965-1982: THREE WAVES COMBINED (ICPSR 9553).
