Perhaps the ultimate way to collect information from people is from beyond the grave. This is essentially what the National Longitudinal Surveys (NLS) of Labor Market Experience did by interviewing the widows of deceased respondents in its 1990 resurvey of the Older Men's cohort. The sample was originally comprised of 5,020 men aged 45 to 59 in 1966. Thanks in part to the cooperation of those left behind, "either directly or indirectly, information is available on 4,295 members of the original 1966 sample," according to the Center for Human Resource Research at Ohio State University, which disseminates the NLS. The data are scheduled for release in mid-1992 and will allow the study of a wide range of topics, including adjusting to retirement, work in old age, and the economic impact of widowhood.
