About

The Predictors of Anxiety and Depression during Adolescence (PANDA) Project is a longitudinal research project directed by Dr. Christine McCauley Ohannessian at Florida State University. The primary goal of the PANDA Project is to examine factors that predict gender differences in psychological problems, especially internalizing problems. Beginning in 2016, survey data were collected from public middle school students in Connecticut and Massachusetts. To date, surveys have been administered to approximately 1,700 adolescents at 7 points of time, each separated by 6 months. An additional follow-up wave of data collection is planned for 2022 as the adolescents enter emerging adulthood.
