ABSTRACT
To investigate the nature and potential consequences of attrition in the National Logitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY), this paper studies the reliability of these data by focusing on three issues: ? Attrition patterns: Does the selection of particular samples from the NLSY on the basis of attrition status alter the distributions of earnings and other labor-market variables in a way that changes our picture of youths' employment experiences? If so, does weighting offset the contaminating influences? ? Characteristics of attriters and returnees: What are the labor-market qualities of those who miss surveys in the NLSY? Also, what are the earnings and work experiences of those who return to the sample? ? Comparability: How does the depiction of youths' labor market outcomes in the NLSY differ from that in the Current Population Survey (CPS)?
