NCES 2021029 2012–2016 Program for International Student Assessment Young Adult Follow-up Study (PISA YAFS): How reading and mathematics performance at age 15 relate to literacy and numeracy skills and education, workforce, and life outcomes at age 19
This Research and Development report provides data on the literacy and numeracy performance of U.S. young adults at age 19, as well as examines the relationship between that performance and their earlier reading and mathematics proficiency in PISA 2012 at age 15. It also explores how other aspects of their lives at age 19—such as their engagement in postsecondary education, participation in the workforce, attitudes, and vocational interests—are related to their proficiency at age 15.

NCES 2010338 Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 Base Year to Second Follow-up Public-use Data
These data are a Public-Use version of the ELS:2002/06 Restricted-use Base Year to Second Follow-up data (NCES 2008-346) released previously. These data can be downloaded using a new “EDAT” web application on the NCES website. The application allows users to download the data files they need for research in one of six statistical programming languages and then select the variables they need to perform that research. ELS:2002/06 is a nationally representative longitudinal survey of 16,200 high school sophomores in 2002, who were interviewed again in 2004 when most were seniors, and again in 2006 when many were sophomores in college or in the workforce. Data are included on the academic and other aspects of the environment of the schools in which these students were enrolled, as well as peer and parental influences. At the college level, data on the extent of college search, expectations, and choice processes prior to college enrollment, as well as information about subsequent pathways into and out of various types of postsecondary institutions are included. The initial entry of these youth into adulthood is then traced with respect to employment, living patterns, family formation, volunteerism, and military service. The last data collection in the survey will be in 2012, when most of the sample members who went to college will have left college and entered the workforce.

NCES 2008346 Education Longitudinal Study of 2002/06: Restricted Use Second Follow-up Data Files, Data File Documentation, and Electronic Codebook System
This ELS:2002/2004 CDROM contains a revised version of the restricted-use base-year to second follow-up data that were previously released. Manuals documenting the sample design of these data, how they were collected, and how they should be used are included. This documentation is public use and can be downloaded directly from the ELS website (http://nces.ed.gov/surveys/els2002 /manuals.asp).

The ELS:2002 longitudinal study is designed to monitor a national sample of young people as they progress from tenth grade through high school and on to postsecondary education and/or the world of work. By the third follow-up in 2012, these young people will be in their mid-twenties.

Users of the original second follow-up restricted-use data (NCES 2008-346) can obtain this revised version (NCES 2008-346r) by requesting it from the IES Data Security Office (IESData.Security@ed.gov). Nearly all of the changes that have been made in the original data are in base year and first follow-up variables and not transcript or second follow-up variables.

However, none of these changes affect data that were originally released in the base year to first follow-up restricted-use data (NCES 2006-430 ), or the transcript restricted-use data (NCES-2006-351).
