Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, Socioeconomic Status, and Health Across the Life Course

Despite the importance of socioeconomic status to health, and documented health inequalities by sexual orientation and gender, knowledge about factors that drive these patterns is lacking. The overall goal of the Sexual Orientation/Gender Identity, Socioeconomic Status, and Health across the Life Course study (SOGI-SES) is to capture and disseminate developmental milestone and socioeconomic information pertinent to the health and development of sexual and gender minorities, as well as heterosexual/cisgender individuals. SOGI-SES will administer a newly developed Minority Stress theory-informed survey to a subset (N=4,000) of National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health) participants who have been followed for over 20 years from adolescence into adulthood. Resulting data will generate new information about relationships between sexual and gender identity, parent-child relationships, employment, socioeconomic status, discrimination, and health and inform public health interventions and public policy.
