All NLTS2 Waves 1 - 5 data are available on the web, including parent/youth interview, school survey, and student assessment data. Users can download and view the data in cross-tabular format.

Each variable of the Wave 1 parent interviews and Waves 2 - 5 parent/youth interviews is cross-tabulated by disability, age, gender, income, and ethnicity. Each variable of the Wave 1 and Wave 2 school surveys is cross-tabulated by disability, age, gender, income, ethnicity, grade, and urbanicity. Each variable of the Direct and Alternate Assessments is cross-tabulated by disability, age at the time of assessment, gender, income, ethnicity, grade at the time of assessment, and urbanicity.
