Abstract: NLS 72 was designed to produce representative data at the national level on the cohort students who were in the 12th grade in 1972. Data were collected by mail, telephone, and personal interviews. It provides information about quality, equity, and diversity of educational opportunity and the effect of those factors on cognitive growth, individual development, and educational outcomes. It also provides information about changes in educational and career outcomes and other transition over time. The NLS 72 data on this CD-ROM is in the format of a public release Data Analysis System (DAS). DAS can produce tables and correlation matrices for you but it will NOT display individual records. Please see QD-008-010 for NLS 72 raw data files.
