A major assumption underlying youth health promotion has been that physiological risk factors track from childhood into adulthood.
However, few studies have systematically examined how behaviors change during adolescence.
This paper describes longitudinal tracking of adolescent health behaviors in two Minnesota Heart Health Program communities.
Beginning in sixth grade (1983), seven annual waves of behavioral measurements were taken from both communities (baseline n=2376).
Self-reported data included smoking behavior, physical activity, and food preferences.
