IPSR Archives

Starting in the 1950s, IPSR began a series of pioneering studies that linked personality to career performance and other life outcomes. Participants came from many different walks of life and were studied intensively using questionnaires, interviews, behavioral observations, and biological measures. IPSR has preserved 16 data sets from this era for use by current and future scholars and is in the process of digitizing the original materials so that they might be more easily used and shared. Follow the links below for descriptions of the data sets and information about accessing these materials.
