The National Children's Study Research Plan: A Review

The planned National Children's Study -- which will follow 100,000 children from before birth until age 21 -- will be the largest long-term study of environmental and genetic effects on children's health ever conducted in the U.S. This new report from The National Academies reviews the study's research plan to assess its scientific rigor and to make sure its methods and data collection will maximize the information the study can provide.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on May 22, 2008 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
