This data collection presents base year through third follow-up data for the National Education Longitudinal Study (see NATIONAL EDUCATION LONGITUDINAL STUDY, 1988 [ICPSR 9389], FIRST FOLLOW-UP, 1990 [ICPSR 9859], and SECOND FOLLOW-UP, 1992 [ICPSR 6448]). In addition, these data sustain continuing trend comparisons with NATIONAL LONGITUDINAL STUDY OF THE CLASS OF 1972 (ICPSR 8085) and HIGH SCHOOL AND BEYOND, 1980 (ICPSR 7896, 8297, 8443, 8896). NELS:88/94 collected information on postsecondary education participation, employment, earnings, family formation, and other activities and experiences relevant to individuals about to enter their adult lives. The collection contains information that represents several nationally representative samples, including eighth graders in 1988, tenth graders in 1990, and twelfth graders in 1992 enrolled in public or private schools. By the time of the third follow-up study in 1994, most NELS:88 sample members had completed four years of high school, while some had dropped out of high school or had attended alternative programs to obtain their diplomas. Part 1, Student-Level Data, includes universe variables, base-year, first follow-up, and second follow-up student components, school variables at the student level, second follow-up early graduate supplement and student-level transcript variables, first follow-up and second follow-up dropout components, base-year and second follow-up parent components, and third follow-up questionnaire and derived variables. Part 2, Postsecondary Education Attendance Data, provides information for third follow-up respondents on attendance at postsecondary institutions, including enrollment dates and major fields of study. Part 3, Postsecondary Institution Data, supplies information about institutions applied to or attended by third follow-up respondents regarding sector, tuition/fee deciles, and enrollment.
