These include minor changes to waves 1 and 2 as well as the addition of wave 3 to the merged datasets. A new variables crosswalk covers waves 1-3 and the merged dataset.

The study explored identity, stress, health outcomes, and health care and services utilization among LGBs in three generations of adults who came of age during different historical contexts. This collection includes public- and restricted-use files for the three waves of data collected and a merged dataset of all three waves.
