The Methods and the Men

  • Daniel A. Hart
Part of the Perspectives in Developmental Psychology book series (PDPS)


There are relatively few longitudinal studies of development, and each of them is unique. The investigation presented in this book can be distinguished from other longitudinal studies by the developmental periods it spans, its intervals between testing times, and, finally, the types of data that have been collected. The men in this study were followed from early adolescence (some were as young as 10 years of age) into early adulthood (at the termination of the study the oldest men were 36 years old). The men were periodically tested, at 3- to 4-year intervals, for 20 years. There are no other major longitudinal studies that both cover this age range and have such frequent testing (Moss & Susman, 1980).
