Cebu was originally designed as a study of infant feeding patterns and how feeding decisions within a household interact with various social, economic, and environmental factors to affect health, nutritional, demographic, and economic outcomes. The study later expanded to include outcomes such as birth weight and gestational age; infant feeding, growth, morbidity, and survival; maternal diet and nutritional status; maternal labor supply and time allocation; and child spacing. The study has expanded to include biomarker data as well as tracking the offspring of the original cohort, leading to a longitudinal, intergenerational study of health and the ability to track the development of chronic disease risk factors and aging-related disabilities.
