For nearly sixty years, the Wisconsin Longitudinal Study (WLS) has followed Wisconsin’s high school class of 1957. The WLS includes six waves of survey data on the 1957 class members and four waves of data on siblings of the class of 1957. Genetic data, a variety of administrative data, and the potential to link to Medicare and Social Security data are also available. Our poster will educate current and potential WLS data users on the content and availability of the WLS dataset. Visitors to the poster will also have the opportunity to ask questions directly to a WLS expert.
