Panel: The National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health) an Introduction to Analysis of Innovative and Sensitive Information within a Secured Computing Environment

Add Health Director, Dr. Robert Hummer, will participate in the Center For Studies in Demography & Ecology (CSDE) Seminar series on Friday, March 3rd at 12:30 PM PT.

In addition to Dr. Hummer, this expert panel includes Professor Luciana (Lucy) Hebert (WSU) and Dr. Phil Hurvitz (CSDE), who will introduce the Add Health Data and the fascinating, exciting and innovative data that are available when you can access the secure data files housed within the CSDE’s UW Data Collaborative. For over 25 years, the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health) project has provided the scientific community with innovative data to understand the health and social life of a nationally representative cohort of Americans who were in grades 7-12 in 1994-95. The data now include five waves of data, social network and biomarker information, parental data, mental health information and more. The panel will introduce the Add Health data, including a discussion of which data sets are available, how to search for variables users may be interested in the different data sets, and how to access the data, particularly within the UW Data Collaborative ( Examples of research results will also be presented.
