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 teacher ratings, theme interviews (FSD2305), peer nominations (FSD2073), and parent interviews (FSD2074). The teacher interviews covered topics such as the 14-year-olds' school, the size of their class, their characteristics, status, popularity, school success, motivation, learning difficulties, use of alcohol and smoking, and attitude towards punishments. In addition, the teachers were asked whether they knew the 14-year-olds' parents and what the parents' attitude was towards their child's education.

The dataset is available only in Finnish.
