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): The CDS provides researchers with extensive data on children and their families to study the dynamic process of early human and social capital formation. The study collects data on children’s health, development, and well-being within the context of the family, school, and neighborhood. The Original CDS was started in 1997, following a cohort of children 0 to 12 years of age across three waves of data collection over the course of a decade. In 2014, the CDS was relaunched as an ongoing longitudinal study that collects data on all children in PSID families 0 to 17 years of age.
- 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: The Transition into Adulthood Supplement (TAS) began in 2005 to follow children from the original CDS cohort into young adulthood, collecting 6 waves of data through 2015. The study was relaunched in 2017 to follow all PSID sample children who are entering early adulthood, and who comprise the future focal sample members of Core PSID. Information is collected on many domains including psychological functioning, family formation, fertility-related behavior, cohabitation, childhood adversity, computer skills, responsibilities, employment and income, education and career goals, and health.
- Childhood Retrospective Circumstances Study (PSID - CRCS). Collected data in 2014 from household heads (‘reference persons’ as of 2017) and, if married/cohabitating, spouses/partners on childhood experiences, including health, socioeconomic status, neighborhood quality, relationships, school experiences, and exposure to the criminal justice system.
- Family Roster and Transfers Module (R&T). Collected from household heads (‘reference persons’ as of 2017) and spouses/partners during the 2013 wave of Core PSID. Includes summary information on family structure and whether there were any short-term transfers to and from parent units and children in the last year as well as long-term transfers from parents and to children.
- Wellbeing and Daily Life Supplement (WB). Collected data in 2016 from household heads (‘reference persons’ as of 2017) and spouses/partners ages 30 and above on well-being, personality traits, and every day skills.
