Add Health Wave IV Public Use Data Released

The Add Health team is pleased to announce the release of the Wave IV public use data.  

Wave IV consists of data from the most recent of four in-home interviews which have followed a nationally representative sample of adolescents since they were in grades 7-12 during the 1994-195 school year. The Wave IV interviews were completed in 2008, when the sample was aged 24-32.  Add Health combines longitudinal survey data on respondents’ social, economic, psychological, and physical well-being with data on the family, neighborhood, community, school, friendships, peer groups, and romantic relationships.

The Wave IV public use data are available for download from Add Health study page on the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research’s website.
