The data are part of the Jyväskylä Longitudinal Study of Personality and Social Development (JYLS), in which the same individuals have been followed over 30 years. At this research stage, data were collected using peer nominations and teacher ratings (FSD2073), a theme interview (FSD2305), and a parent interview. This dataset contains the transcribed responses to the questions presented in the parent interview. No predetermined response categories were used. The recorded interviews were classified only afterwards, when it was possible to observe the whole range of responses. The interviewed parents told about their 14-year-old by answering questions on family relations, school and education, housing, identity, use of alcohol and smoking, free time activities, and hobbies, to name a few.

The dataset is available only in Finnish.
