Initial findings from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health) were released in 1997. This project will provide support for the release of additional findings. Add Health is the largest and most extensive research study ever undertaken on adolescents in the United States. This federally funded study of a nationally representative sample of adolescents in grades 7 through 12 was designed to help explain the causes of adolescent health and health behavior with emphasis on the effects of various environmental influences on adolescents including school, community, neighborhood, peer group, family, friends, and romantic partners. Under this grant, additional policy- and program-relevant findings from analyses of school questionnaires and in-home interviews will be disseminated to individuals who make decisions affecting the health of adolescents. The release of new findings will occur through the media, publications, presentations, and the internet.
