|Title:||Asset and Health Dynamics of the Oldest-Old (AHEAD): HRS Auxiliary Study, 1995 [United States]|
|Primary Investigator(s):||Juster, F. Thomas, and Robert J. Willis, Survey Research Center (SRC)|
|Abstract:||Also known as Aging and Health in America, this biennial survey of a cohort of noninstitutionalized people 70 years of age and older (in 1993) in the coterminous United States is funded by the National Institute on Aging to investigate the relationships between age-related health transitions and economic, familial, and claims-based resources. Questionnaire topics include cognitive performance, family structure and support, physical and functional health, economic status, housing, service use (community and nursing home), demographic characteristics, out-of-pocket costs for all services, claims on transfer programs, and dissaving and Medicaid eligibility. In addition, seven experimental modules utilize innovative measures such as a resiliency scale. The survey data are being linked with administrative records from Medicare files, the National Death Index, and Social Security earnings and benefit files.|
