Transitions From Preschool Through High School: Family, Schools and Neighborhoods

a PSC Research Project

Investigators:   Narayan Sastry, Matthew M. Davis, Jacquelynne S. Eccles, Robert F. Schoeni

In 1997, the Child Development Supplement (CDS) was initially added to the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) with the goal of improving an understanding of the socio-demographic, psychological, and economic aspects of childhood from a nationally representative longitudinal perspective. In 2002-2003, a second wave was collected on the children. In this proposal, we request funds to capitalize on investments made in the first two waves of the CDS by:



(1) Collecting the third wave of data from the 2,077 CDS youth who participated in at least CDS-I and will be 18 years or younger in 2007,



(2) Creating linkages with the National Center for Education Statistics Common Core of Data (NCES-CCD) and to Private School Survey to provide details on these children’s schooling environments and opportu-nities, and



(3) Integrating the CDS-III data, with scale composites and time diary recodes, into the existing PSID-CDS data archive.

Funding Period: 07/03/2007 to 06/30/2013
