Elyssa Besen, Ph.D. candidate in the Lynch School of Education and research assistant at the Sloan Center on Aging & Work has been selected as one of 15 scholars from across the U.S. to participate in the Data Training and Users Workshop for the Longitudinal Study of Generations (LSOG) this summer in Park City, Utah. The LSOG is a long-term study of over 3,000 individuals from more than 400 four-generation families who have been surveyed eight times between 1971 and 2006. Family members in the study range from 16 years of age to 100. The workshop will train researchers to work with this extraordinary and rich source of data.
