We started our research in the spring of 1966 by polling Estonian secondary school seniors. For carrying out the survey, random sampling was used. The sample was drawn according to the territorial indicator and to the population in those towns and communities where the secondary schools were located. Our survey embraced 2.260 respondents, that is 50.9 percent of all secondary school leavers. All in all, 4.400 students graduated that year from schools where Estonian was the language of instruction. Since the population, examined at the given stage of our investigation serves as the basis for the entire longitudinal research, data denoting the proportion of surveyed subjects-sample of this initial generation (cohort) is presented. In 1966, that is eleven years after entering the first grade, altogether 7.000 students graduated from secondary general education schools, six thousand of them from secondary schools where Estonian was the language of instruction. In total 54 % of the cohort graduated from all types of secondary schools in 1966. Thus, our sample constitutes one third of those who graduated from secondary schools of general education and somewhat less than a quarter of those who received secondary education this year. The first stage of our research covered 12% of those born in 1948. Women made up 62.7% of the respondents in 1966. This roughly corresponds to the proportion of men and women among all secondary school leavers. Thus we surveyed 9% of men and 16% of women who were born in 1948.

The Estonian Longitudinal Survey (ELS) actually began in 1966 when Mikk Titma conducted the first stage of survey on a cohort of Estonian Young people, who were at that time eighteen-years-old students in their last year of Estonian-language general secondary school. Titma last interviewed these respondents in 1979. Working with an international team of researchers, Titma administered another round of the ELS between February and July 1991, while, at this stage, expanding the survey's scope. Following overview describes the specific methodology of the 1991 ELS, including the instrument and sample designs, the field procedures, and the characteristics of the respondents.
