Data Releases

ABCD Data Release 1.1 available
now on the NIMH Data Archive!

The first annual curated ABCD data release 1.0 was made available to the scientific community in February 2018. Subsequently, the Data Analysis and Informatics Center (DAIC) of the ABCD Consortium addressed errors related to some of the imaging-derived tabulated data, improved the formatting of some measures, and made enhancements (e.g., assessment summary scores; imaging QC metrics) to the data. These changes are included in ABCD Data Release 1.1.  Click here for a brief summary of the modifications included in Data Release 1.1. Full details will be included in the Release Notes for Data Release 1.1.

ABCD Neurocognitve Prediction Challenge

The ABCD Neurocognitive Prediction Challenge (ABCD-NPC 2019) invites researchers to submit their method for predicting fluid intelligence from t1-weighed MRI (11K subjects in total, age 9-10 years old). The data of about 4K individuals will be provided for training. The validity of each method will be assessed on its predicted fluid intelligence scores of the remaining 7K children, whose actual scores will be revealed after the challenge deadline. Downloading the data requires approval by the NIMH Data Archive (NDA). An application form will need to be signed by the affiliated institution, so start the application process early.
~ December 15, 2018:   Data Available for Download with Specific Submission Instructions
