Social Genome Model 2.0: Technical Documentation and User's Guide

Abstract

The Social Genome Model (SGM) is a lifecycle model that uses data from three longitudinal surveys to track a matched panel of individuals from birth to age 30. The goal is to understand how private sector and public policy interventions could improve lifetime outcomes of children and young adults. The model also allows researchers to track patterns of development across different gender and race/ethnicity groups. This technical document outlines the process of creating the model and how to use it.
