National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health), 1990-2008: Political Context Database [Restricted Use] (ICPSR 28843) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

The National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health) is a longitudinal study of a nationally representative sample of adolescents in grades 7-12 in the United States during the 1994-1995 school year. The Add Health cohort has been followed into young adulthood with four in-home interviews, the most recent 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 contextual data on the family, neighborhood, community, school, friendships, peer groups, and romantic relationships, providing unique opportunities to study how social environments and behaviors in adolescence are linked to health and achievement outcomes in young adulthood. The fourth wave of interviews expanded the collection of biological data in Add Health to understand the social, behavioral, and biological linkages in health trajectories as the Add Health cohort ages through adulthood. The Add Health Political Context Database provides an array of measures that describe the political environments in which Add Health respondents reside and, thereby, enables researchers to explore the role of certain contextual influences on adolescent and early adult political behaviors. The Political Context Data was collected from 1990-2004. For more information, please see the study website.

Scope of Study

Methodology

Sample:   Wave I, Stage 1 School sample: Stratified, random sample of all high schools in the United States. A school was eligible for the sample if it included an 11th grade and had a minimum enrollment of 30 students. A feeder school, a school that sent graduates to the high school and that included a 7th grade, was also recruited from the community. Wave I, Stage 2: An in-home sample of 27,000 adolescents was drawn consisting of a core sample from each community plus selected special over samples. Eligibility for over samples was determined by an adolescent's responses on the In-School Questionnaire. Adolescents could qualify for more than one sample. For this dataset, the voting results for all counties and states in which respondents reside were obtained.

Mode of Data Collection:   record abstracts

Extent of Processing:  ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:

  • Performed consistency checks.
  • Standardized missing values.
  • Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
