This project expands the data collection of the Fragile and Families and Children Wellbeing Study (FFS). It conducts another round of interviews with mothers and children when children are 15 years old. This project also collects saliva samples from 3,600 children at age 15 to be used for future Methylation analysis. Approximately 3600 mothers and 3100 children are interviewed via phone. These phone interviews are 55 minutes long for mothers and 45 minutes long for children. Five hundred adolescents are interviewed in person for approximately 1 hour.
