Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) Series. 1968+
Designed to fill the need for a better understanding of the determinants of family income and its changes. Longitudinal survey of US individuals and the families in which they reside. Can be used for cross-sectional, longitudinal, and intergenerational analysis and for studying both individuals and families. For comparisons of Current Population Survey, Survey of Income and Program Participation, and PSID, see the comparison chart. Also see Poverty Threshold data, 1968-2005. For comparisons of National Longitudinal Surveys, Survey of Income and Program Participation, and PSID, see the comparison chart. Includes section on education, food, health, housing, psychological state, and religion. Geography is down to the state level.
Includes various supplemental surveys including:
- Disability and Use of Time (DUST): collected information from older adults in PSID families about disability, time use, and well-being during telephone interviews conducted shortly after the 2009 and 2013 Main Interviews.
- Child Development Supplement (CDS): In 1997 information on PSID children ages 0-12 was obtained through extensive interviews with the child, their primary caregiver, secondary caregiver, absent parent, teacher, and school administrator. Information was collected again in 2002/2003 and 2007/2008 for children in this cohort who remained under 18. Information includes a broad array of developmental outcomes including physical health, emotional well-being, intellectual and academic achievement, cognitive ability, social relationships with family and peers, time diaries, and much more. The CDS 2014 covers all sample children in PSID households born or adopted into the PSID since 1997. The study design and questionnaire content are consistent with earlier waves of CDS to permit cross - cohort analysis of children's development.
- Housing, Mortgage Stress, and Wealth Data (2009, 2011, 2013, 2015) as well as Wealth files for 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2001, 2003, 2005 and 2007.
- Transition into Adulthood: When children in the CDS cohort are older than 18 and have left high school, information is obtained about their circumstances. This study has been implemented in 2005, and biennially thereafter. Information includes measures of time use, psychological functioning, marriage, family, responsibilities, employment and income, education and career goals, health, social environment, religiosity, and outlook on life.
- Childhood Retrospective Circumstances Study (PSID - CRCS). First study conducted by the PSID using the internet as the primary mode of data collection. Goal was to design and collect a mixed mode (web or paper) module from household heads and, if married/cohabitating, spouses/partners, about their childhood experiences. The data may be used to study early life influences on adult health and economic outcomes. Has questions on parental relationships, health, socioeconomic status, neighborhood quality, friendships, school experiences, exposure to the criminal justice system, parent/guardian mental health, and young adut mentoring. The initial PSID-CRCS sample consisted of 13,117 individuals aged 19 and older (aged 19 by January 1, 2013) who were household heads and spouses/partners in PSID families that participated in the 2013 wave of PSID. Individuals for which other family unit members or proxies served as respondents in the 2013 core PSID interview and those who completed their core interview in Spanish were not eligible (N=593). During editing eligibility status was reviewed and confirmed for 12,985 cases. Many portions of CRCS are restricted.
