WELCOME TO YDS DATA ARCHIVE CODEBOOK


INSTRUCTIONS

You may access information about the YDS surveys in two ways.

Domain List:      To see the questions asked in each variable domain (for example, education, employment, etc.), click the section title below under each wave's codebook. You can see each of the question(s) and response options. By clicking on the specific questions that interest you, you will reach the cross-waves listing to find the waves (years) it was included in the survey.

Cross-wave Variable List:      Or you can go directly to the links on the left side of this page to examine the availability of the questions across waves. You may then click on the section number (e.g, E1) for each wave to see the actual questions asked and the response options.


For questions and information about access to the data, contact Professor Jeylan T. Mortimer, Principal Investigator. If you wish to request data, please prepare a variable list in a spreadsheet (e.g., MS Excel) with one variable per cell and attach it to your e-mail. Variables should be listed only by name or by cohort/wave/question number (e.g., EDULV19 or G2W19 C1).
