Title: HSLS:09 Base Year to Second Follow-up Public-Use Data File
Description: This data file includes public-use data from the base year through second follow-up of the High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09).

This release includes the most recent data from the High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09), collected as part of the Second Follow-up. HSLS:09 follows a nationally representative sample of students who were ninth-graders in fall 2009 from the beginning of high school into higher education and the workforce. The second follow-up was conducted from March 2016 through January 2017, approximately 3 years after high school graduation for most of the cohort. The data collected allow researchers to examine an array of young-adulthood outcomes among fall 2009 ninth-graders, including delayed high school completion, postsecondary enrollment, early postsecondary persistence and attainment, labor market experiences, family formation, and family financial support.
