The Child Development Supplement (CDS) is one research component of the PSID, a longitudinal study of a representative sample of U.S. individuals and the families in which they reside. Since 1968, the PSID has collected data on family composition changes, housing and food expenditures, marriage and fertility histories, employment, income and wealth, time use, health, and more. In 1997, the PSID supplemented its core data collection with additional information on PSID parents and their 0-12 year-old children. Five years later, the same children and adolescents (then aged 5-18 years) whose families remained active in the PSID panel as of 2001 were interviewed for a second time.

Within the context of family, neighborhood, and school environments, CDS studies a broad array of developmental outcomes including health, emotional well-being, academic achievement, and social relationships with family and peers. The CDS survey design is complex, relying on time diary methodology, cognitive assessments, height and weight measurements, and computer-assisted personal self-interviews. Data are collected from multiple family members and the schools that the youth attend.

Data and documentation are available on the Internet free-of-charge. The PSID-CDS Data Center is a user-friendly interface that allows the easy creation of customized data files and codebooks in a variety of formats.
