AbstractThe Add Health Parent Study (AHPS) is a longitudinal survey collecting data on parents of the respondents of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health) begun in 1994, AHPS provides 20 Yr Follow-Up data, collected 2015-17, for these parents. Data dissemination will begin around June 2018. The goal of this poster is to inform PAA members of the availability and research potential of these new data. Using data on parents from Wave 1 and the new AHPS 20 Yr Follow-Up and data on children in Add Health at Wave 4, we present a preliminary statistical portrait from three perspectives: (1) Assessing representativeness, comparing AHPS data with that from the HRS and NHANES; (2) Parents’ longitudinal change in demographic, health & other outcomes for the parents in AHPS; (3) Intergenerational correlations in these outcomes between parents in AHPS with their Add Health children in adulthood.
