Abstract: The Child Development Supplement (CDS) to the Panel Study of Income Dynamics (PSID) is a nationally representative, longitudinal study of children and their families in the United States. Children 0-12 years from PSID families were fist sampled in 1997 and re-interviewed in 2002. A third wave of CDS was collected 2007-2008 for the children who are now aged 10-18.

The CDS collects comprehensive time diaries, age-graded assessments of cognitive and behavioral development, health status indicators, and extensive data on family processes from the children, primary and secondary caregivers in the home, and teachers. CDS also provides linkages to national data on schools and census-based data on neighborhoods. Furthermore, the combined PSID-CDS archive offers substantial demographic, health, and economic data about the children’s parents, grandparents, and other family members. The PSID has collected data for nearly four decades. Given its genealogical sample design, the CDS youth will eventually become future ‘active panel’ of the PSID when these youth establish a household of their own. Detailed data on their adult lives will be collected at that point. Until then, CDS youth 18 years and older will participate in a separate biennial interview about their transitions into adulthood. The first data collection was conducted in 2005 and a second wave was implemented in 2007-2008.
