NIH adolescent and parent diet and demographic data sets data sets now available

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Behavioral Research Program is pleased to announce adolescent and parent diet and demographic data sets from the Family Life, Activity, Sun, Health, and Eating (FLASHE) Study are now available for free download. Additional diet outcome variables, the physical activity data set, and additional FLASHE variables are planned for release later this year.

Survey data include psychosocial, generational (parent-adolescent), and environmental correlates of cancer-preventive behaviors. The study’s purpose is to help researchers understand lifestyle behaviors that relate to cancer risk. The majority of the survey questions focus on diet and physical activity, with additional survey items about sleep, sun safety and tobacco use.
