Much of the burden of disease and social adversity in adulthood is linked to long-standing patterns of behaviour and lifestyle. These patterns of behaviour often have their origins in adolescence. Using repeated measures from questionnaire, physical and biological data collected in the Western Australia Pregnancy (Raine) Cohort, we will model pathways of health risk indicators (problem behaviour, injury, overweight, physical inactivity, substance use, sexual risk behaviour) from childhood through adolescence, and then use these trajectories to quantify the risks of adverse health and social outcomes in adulthood, collected via Raine and the WA Data Linkage system.
