Danish Longitudinal Survey of Youth (dlsy) 1968-2010

The Danish Longitudinal Survey of Youth (DLSY) provides a unique insight into the life cycle of the respondents (eg education, career and family) and the relationship between generations including the issue of social heritage.

For more than 40 years the DLSY has followed approx. 3000 people, from their youth in 1968 to today, where many have teenage/adult children of their own.

The children of the original respondents were interviewed in the latest survey (Danish Longitudinal Survey of Youth – Children (DLSY-C)), so that the survey now covers three generations:

  • The parents of the original respondents
  • The original respondents
  • The children of the original respondents
