New Researchers - Raine Study

The Follow-Ups

The Raine Study has followed our participants for more than three decades.  Our participants comprise four generations – Gen0, Gen1, Gen2 and Gen3.  Until recently, follow-ups have focused on Gen1 and Gen2, however, we are now beginning to collect select data on our Gen3 and Gen0 as well.


Gen1: mothers and fathers who enrolled in the original pregnancy study between 1989 and 1991

Gen2: the children of Gen1 (born between 1989-1992)

Gen3: the children of Gen2

Gen0: the grandparents of Gen2

At each follow-up, the Raine Study collects basic measures on each participant, such as height, weight and blood pressure in order to track them longitudinally over their life course, as well as data on specific areas of research interest.
