The tables shown here complement those included in the publications that have been published using the ELS:2002 data. Additional tables will be added to ELS:2002 Table Library periodically.

The tables are all produced using the ELS:2002/06 second follow-up data file, which is available in public-use form using Online Codebook and in restricted-use form through obtaining a restricted-use license. The ELS Variable List lists all the variables available in all of the ELS data files.

Suggestions from users on tables to include in this “Tables” section of the ELS:2002 website are welcome.
