Q:  

I'm interested in looking at birth weight as a measure of child well-being. I can only find this in the Child Development Supplement (CDS), but this is only available from 1997 on.

A:  

Birth outcome data for the PSID are available from the Family History Files:

These are not part of the Data Center extraction tool. However, these records can be merged to the extract based on a Data Center extract.
