Narendorf raised 2 concerns about our study of the long-term effects of the Child-Parent Center Program on health and well-being.1 The first was the limitation of our self-report measure of depressive symptoms, and the second was the inclusion of the mental health results, which Narendorf believes were not robust and diluted the reporting of findings for educational attainment, criminal behavior, health insurance coverage, and other outcomes.
