The National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health)

The Add Health Survey is a comprehensive school-based study of the health-related behaviors of adolescents in the United States. Over 90,000 students in grades 7-12 participated in phase one of this study, with over 20,000 parents and adolescents participating in phase two. Phase three was completed in April 2002 when the original sample, all of whom were young adults, were interviewed for a third time. Dr. Michael Resnick, PhD, director of the Prevention Research Center, envisioned a dissemination plan for this nationally renowned survey in a manner that would best serve those serving adolescents. This research was analyzed and transformed into a monograph series focused on several core audience segments (education, health care, parent/family support professional) as well as the general public.
