This study tests whether age at exposure to adverse childhood experiences (ACE) affects later outcomes. Only little research has addressed this question, despite both the recent debate on sensitive periods in brain formation and theories in social psychology that predict age-graded effects of ACE. Using Danish administrative data (birth cohorts 1987-1995, N=605,344) and sibling fixed effects models, the current study contributes by estimating the correlation between exposure to ACEs at specific points in childhood and later outcomes such as adolescent anti-social behavior, drug use and mental health problems
