This chapter examines the important role that David Farrington has played in the start-up and design of the Pittsburgh Youth Study and how he always stressed hands-on data collection and management. It contrasts past with future data collection techniques and improved issues of confidentiality in the current world of data sharing. It also discusses optimal management conditions for the execution of longitudinal studies, stressing the need for ongoing quality controls for data collection, and advances in methods of data storage, multidisciplinary collaboration within and across studies, and the need to optimize the yields of longitudinal studies through secondary data analyses.

Keywords:   David Farrington, Pittsburgh Youth Study, data collection, longitudinal studies, data analyses
