The New Hampshire Birth Cohort Study

The New Hampshire Birth Cohort Study is a Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth study with online and telephone interviewing conducted by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center.

The New Hampshire Birth Cohort Study is an ongoing research project that is investigating how various factors such as contaminants in the environment affect the health of pregnant women and their children. Beginning in 2009, the UNH Survey Center began the interview portion of the study.

The study is now in its 10th year and we are pleased to announce that the study has been selected to be part of a national cohort designed to study the Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO). As part of this national effort, the New Hampshire Birth Cohort Study has been extended to follow the health and well-being of New Hampshire children through the age of 12 years old.
