|Title:||Norwegian Life History Study, 1971|
|Primary Investigator(s):||Oslo Institute for Applied Research|
|Abstract:||The major instrument used in this study was an interview guide in which the great majority of questions concern events and states in the past. Adult men were asked about the families into which they were born, briefly about their childhood, and then in great detail, about their lives from the age of fourteen until the time of the interview. The major life areas covered in the interviews include: place of residence, education, occupation, industry, wages and salaries, total yearly income, household status and composition, marital status and family composition, illness and injuries, and receipt of benefits under provisions of various health, welfare, and educational laws. Any state that lasted at least one month was recorded and dated.|
|Universe:||Men chosen to be interviewed were selected from three single-year age cohorts: those born in 1921, 1931, and 1941, who were 50, 40, and 30 years of age at the time the interviews were conducted (November 1971 - March 1972).|
