Impact of family relocation on children's growth, development, school function, and behaviour.
Objective.-The United States is a highly mobile society, with family relocation rates double those of Great Britain and Germany.
The objective of this study was to describe the impact of frequent family moves on reported rates of delay in growth or development, learning disorders, school failure, and frequent behavioral problems in US school-age children.
Design and Setting.-We analyzed data on 9915 six- to 17-year-old children of families responding to the 1988 National Health Interview Survey, a nationally representative sample of families and children.
Outcome Measures.-Parents were asked to report the total number of moves the index child had experienced during his or her lifetime.
Total moves were adjusted for the child's age in years.
