The studies described in the referenced papers collected clinical and demographic data from adolescents aged 12-18 years from high schools in the area of Worcester, South Africa. This data item contains the clinical and demographic data collected.

clinical_data.csv, clinical_data.xlsx and clinical_data.rds contain the actual clinical data. They are identical except that the first is a CSV file, the second an XLSX file and the third an RDS file. The RDS file is useful because it can be read into R using `readRDS('clinical_data.rds')` and then retains the original variable types for each of the columns.
clinical_data-column_descriptions.txt describes what each of the columns are and contain.
