This project involves the set-up of a cohort of 1000 16-year old young adults that allows for studying self-regulation strategies over a period of 10 years and examine:
- how the nature and frequency of self-regulation strategies develops during the critical period of young adulthood
- to what extent the employment of self-regulation strategies is affected by environmental (e.g., neighborhood characteristics) and personal (e.g., life events, life transitions) factors
- how such strategies affect health and wellbeing with an emphasis on critical choices about health and wellbeing (e.g., relationships).
Once the cohort has been established and is operational, a repository of data will be set up for which researchers can apply for secondary data analyses.
