Abstract The data in this analysis are from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 (NLSY97). The NLSY97 is a nationally representative sample of 8,984 men and women who were born between 1980 and 1984 and were living in the United States at the time of the initial survey. Survey participants were first interviewed in 1997 when they were between 12 and 17 years old, and they have been interviewed every year since. In the NLSY97, employment information is collected in an event-history format, which includes the start and stop dates of each job and dates when the respondent is unemployed or out of the labor force. This information is used to create a week-by-week history of employment for each survey participant.
