National Survey of Families and Household, 1992
The National Survey of Families and Households 1988 (available separately) was a national survey designed to look at the causes and consequences of changes in the American family and household structure. It included interviews with probability sample of 13,017 respondents conducted between March, 1987, and May, 1988. This dataset is the second wave of NSFH, a five-year follow-up to the original interviews. Wave 2 of NSFH includes (1) an interview of all surviving members of the original sample; (2) a similar interview with the current spouse or cohabiting partner; (3) an interview with the original spouse or partner of the primary respondent if the relationship has ended; (4) a telephone interview with "focal children "who were originally age 13-18; (5) a short telephone interview with "focal children "who were originally age 5-12; (6) short proxy interviews with a surviving spouse or other relative if the original respondent has died or is too ill to interview; and (7) a telephone interview with a randomly selected parent of the main respondent.
