Individual trajectories of asthma, obesity and ADHD during the transition from childhood and adolescence to young adulthood

Data on chronic diseases in childhood and adolescence are regularly collected in the German Health Interview and Examination Survey for Children and Adolescents (KiGGS).

Using KiGGS cohort data, this issue describes individual trajectories of asthma, obesity and ADHD during the transition from childhood and adolescence to young adulthood.

The KiGGS study is a key source of information for comprehensive and reliable data on the health situation of the upcoming generation. In the longitudinal component – the KiGGS cohort – 17,640 children and adolescents aged between 0 and 17 years who took part in the KiGGS baseline study (2003–2006) were interviewed and examined into young adulthood.
