Health Screen

Title

Health Screen

Description

The Health Screen was a parent and subject self-report measure (depending on wave and cohort) that consisted of questions regarding health-related quality of life. It was taken from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey. Both physical and emotional health were screened on this form.

WAVE 1: The Health Screen (PDF 3.8MG) was used to obtain the general health condition of the subjects, the frequency with which they were not in good physical or mental health, and if this prevented them from doing usual activities, such as playing. It was administered to subjects' caregivers for Cohorts 3 and 6 and to the subjects, themselves, for Cohorts 9 to 18.

WAVE 2: The Health Screen (PDF 6.3MG) was used to obtain the general health condition of the subjects. The Wave 2 instrument contained a more detailed health history than the Wave 1 instrument. The Wave 2 instrument included information regarding lifetime illnesses and past-year health. It was administered to subjects' caregivers for Cohorts 0 to 15 and to the subjects, themselves, for Cohort 18.

WAVE 3: The Health Screen (PDF 3.6MG) was used to obtain information regarding the general health condition of the subjects. It was administered to subjects' caregivers for Cohorts 0 to 12 and to the subjects, themselves, for Cohorts 15 and 18.
