    Abstract: The Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 is a nationally 
representative study of two high school grade cohorts (spring 2002 
tenth-graders and spring 2004 twelfth-graders) comprising over 16,000 
sample members. The study focuses on achievement growth in mathematics 
in the high school years and its correlates, the family and school 
social context of secondary education, transitions from high school to 
postsecondary education and/or the labor market, and experiences during 
the postsecondary years. Major topics covered for the postsecondary 
years include postsecondary education access, choice, and persistence; 
baccalaureate and sub-baccalaureate attainment; the work experiences of 
the non-college-bound; and other markers of adult status such as family 
formation, civic participation and other young adult life course 
developments. Data collections took place in 2002, 2004, 2006 (two 
years out of high school), and now will take place in 2012, when most 
sample members are around 26 years of age. This submission requests 
OMB's approval for the third follow-up 2011 field test and a 60-day 
Federal Register waiver for the 2012 full scale clearance.
