His research involves the study of individuals and a twin resulting in "The Baltimore Study of Black Aging (BSBA)"; the first data collection was designed to examine the influence on everyday cognition and health among African Americans. It continues today, more than 13 years and 2700 interviews later. Dr. Whitfield also developed his own twin study of health and psychosocial factors related to health called the Carolina African American Twin Study of Aging (CAATSA). CAATSA is one of the largest in-person studies of adult African Americans twins. This study examined genetic and environmental contributions to hypertension, smoking, depression, cognitive impairment, and lung function.
