Abstract: While cross-sectional studies have been commonly employed to examine personal well-being and family quality of life among Chinese adolescents, comparatively fewer efforts were put in longitudinal studies in different Chinese societies. To examine the personal well-being and quality of family life in Chinese adolescents in Hong Kong, a groundbreaking 6-year longitudinal study was launched within the Project P.A.T.H.S. in Hong Kong. After comparing and contrasting the strengths and weaknesses of cross-sectional and longitudinal studies in adolescent development research, this chapter outlines the methodology of this longitudinal study, including the sample, instruments on personal well-being and family quality of life, and procedures. Moreover, the methodological unique features of the study are highlighted, and the demographic characteristics of the sample in the junior secondary school years are presented.
