The Obesity and Neighborhood Environment (ONE) database is a collection of variables derived using spatial analysis techniques that link community-level data to individual Add Health respondent residential locations in both space and time. The database provides physical, social, and economic neighborhood environment measures corresponding with Add Health respondent locations in Waves I and III. Community-level data include density and proximity to recreational facilities, land use patterning, population, economic, climate, and crime statistics, which are linked spatially and temporally to individual-level Add Health behavior and health outcome data. Request for these files must include a brief justification explaining the necessity and relevance of the data to the research agenda. There are no special security requirements. For more information, please see the study website.

2010-06-04 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.
  • Created variable labels and/or value labels.
  • Standardized missing values.
  • Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
