Opportunities for Geographic Research with the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth

Although the 1980s were to be the era of longitudinal analysis little geographic research has taken advantage of longitudinal data. One reason is because geographers require data-sets which contain both information on residential histories and information which is geographically representative. The National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY) meets both requirements and can support important geographic research.

Components of average wage differentials in the youth labor market are examined using a wage decomposition method letting both race & gender vary, drawing on data from the 1984 National Longitudinal Survey of Labor Market Experience (total N = 3,483 employed whites & blacks ages 19-26). Issues also addressed. Findings indicate that bias in the youth labor market focuses more on gender than race. However, until researchers devise consistent methods of estimating the source, amount, & direction of discrimination, policymakers face difficulty devising procedures to correct discriminatory wage differences. 7 Tables, 23 References.

This article examines the National Longitudinal Surveys of Labor Market Experience, commonly called the NLS. The article first provides a brief overview of the information available in these long-running surveys. Second, it discusses the contributions of NLS-based research to various topics within the field of economics. Finally, it summarizes topics within the NLS questionnaires that have expanded recently to accommodate the changing circumstances of the cohorts.
