RADAR (Research on Adolescent Development And Relationships) is a long-term study that focuses on adolescents' relationships with parents and peers, their emotional state of mind, personality, identity and problem behavior. It also examines how relationships, personality and behavior in adolescence influence relationships with partners, psychosocial development and upbringing and relationships with their children in young adulthood. Around 800 participants have been followed for 15 to 20 years in their development from early adolescence to adulthood. Additionally, their parents, sibling, friend, intimate partner and children also participate in the study. The participants are now young adults.
