Linkage between civic engagement in adolescence and physical and mental health status in young adulthood. (P. Ballard, UCB; L. Hoyt, Fordham U.; M. Pachucki, U. Amherst)

This project engaged new investigators conducting a secondary data analysis, using AddHealth data. The study focuses on youth development and how civic engagement affects trajectories into adulthood. The researchers have completed their analysis, presented their work at the 2017 meeting of the Society for Research on Child Development and submitted a manuscript that is currently under review.
