The National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health) is a longitudinal study of a nationally representative sample of >20,000 adolescents, originally in grades 7-12 during 1994-95, and then followed for 5 waves to date, last in 2016-18. Over the years, Add Health collected demographic, social, familial, socioeconomic, behavioral, psychosocial, cognitive, and health survey data from participants & their parents; a vast array of contextual data from participants’ schools, neighborhoods, and geographies of residence; and in-home physical and biological data from participants, including genetic markers, blood-based assays, anthropometric measures, and medications. Ancillary studies have added even more data over the years. Data from the project are available in various forms.
