Change to the Add Health Study Name

Include the new study name, National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health, in your Add Health publications

Add Health has been renamed the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health to reflect the study’s ongoing, real time life view that follows individuals from early adolescence into adulthood.  Add Health researchers should use the new study name in all publications, presentations and reports based on analysis of Add Health data, as well as grant submissions that reference Add Health, and when citing the Add Health research design. 

To reference the research design of Add Health data, please use the following citation:
