The NIMH Data Archive provides the infrastructure for the sharing of data generated by the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development Study (ABCD).  Data are expected to first be shared in late 2017.  

Data generated by investigators working on the landmark NIH collaborative ABCD Study will be harmonized, stored, and shared through the infrastructure of the NIMH Data Archive (NDA). ABCD's home in the NDA will allow researchers to share de-identified data, accelerating scientific progress while preserving the confidentiality of research participants. For more information on the NDA, browse some of the other NDA-operated databases such as the National Database for Autism Research. For more information on ABCD, visit the NIH's ABCD Study page. Data is expected to be available in ABCD for secondary access over the coming years.
