Description
Provides an opportunity to examine the effects of education on adolescent behavior, academic achievement, and cognitive and psychosocial development in the 1990s. Expands the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health). While Add Health is a rich source of data on social contexts and adolescent development, it has limited information on the academic trajectories of youth. Thus, the AHAA study contributes to Add Health by providing the high school transcripts of Add Health Wave III sample members. The AHAA data provides indicators of (1) educational achievement, (2) course taking patterns, (3) curricular exposure, and (4) educational contexts within and between schools, all of which can be linked to the Add Health survey data. Access is restricted and through Sociometrics. To access
