As of April 1, 2013, the Manitoba Longitudinal Study of Young Adults (MLSYA) Data Access Program will begin accepting applications from researchers who would like to use this unique dataset for their own research studies.
The MLSYA followed a longitudinal sample (n=679) of 18 to 20 year olds from across Manitoba over a five year period from 2007 to 2011.
Although the MLSYA was designed as a gambling study, the dataset contains a wealth of instruments that could be used to answer diverse research questions about the changing behaviours of young adults.
