How long will the NLSY79 continue?
We hope the NLSY79 will continue for many more years. Thanks to all of you who have participated since 1979, the survey has been successful beyond our dreams. Researchers and policymakers in a variety of fields regard the NLSY79 as the gold standard for surveys. Information from the NLSY79 becomes more valuable and useful each year it is conducted. You have been telling us about your experiences from young adulthood to midlife. As long as funding continues to be available, we intend to keep asking you about your experiences for years to come.
