Index children have now been followed through adolescence and into young adulthood, and the CHLNS is tracking their offspring as they begin to have children themselves. The objective is to have a high quality, longitudinal intergenerational study of health. For the mothers, the objective is to follow mothers to the end of their reproductive careers to understand the effects of reproductive cycles on maternal health and nutritional status and to track the development of chronic disease risk factors and aging-rela ted disabilities. The 1998-99 survey added a focus on adolescent reproductive health and sexual behavior, and measured physical activity using questionnaires as well as an objective measure (Caltrac). In addition, a subgroup of the sample participated in a clinical study which collected fasting blood samples and saliva. An additional pilot study examined the effects of typhoid immunization on thymic function and immune status. Blood pressure measurements in the adolescents and mothers were added to this survey. Among the mothers, memory tests and questionnaire modules on physical functioning were added.
