Understanding the Role of Adolescent Housing Residence on Adverse Childhood Experiences and Outcomes of Chronic Disease Risk: Data Linkage Report
From 1994 - 2018, the University of North Carolina carried out the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health). Add Health is the largest and most comprehensive longitudinal study of adolescent health ever conducted in the U.S., with a nationally-representative sample of 20,745 adolescents. Some Add Health respondents are HUD program participants, and have associated records in HUD administrative databases. To help researchers explore social, behavioral, economic, and health outcomes associated with residence in public and assisted housing, the authors of this report linked the anonymized records of eligible HUD-assisted Add Health respondents to their respective HUD administrative records.
