In 1960, AIR launched Project Talent, the largest and most comprehensive study of high school students ever conducted in the United States. Project Talent data are now available to researchers through the National Archive of Computerized Data on Aging. AIR survey methodologists worked with University of Michigan colleagues to prepare the data and documentation for preservation, enhancement, and dissemination. The team transformed the data from a large number of files on 9-track tapes to a data file for each high school grade, documenting the data and creating tools to facilitate its use.
