Sharon Kardia: Genomics in the Health & Retirement Study
a PSC Research Project
Investigator: David Weir
In 2006, the Health and Retirement Study introduced a new in-person interview design that includes physical performance measures, anthropometric measures, blood pressure, dried blood spot assays, DNA collection, Social Security consent request, and a self-administered psychosocial questionnaire (the enhanced face-to-face interview). Half the sample received this interview in 2006 and the other half will receive it in 2008. This supplement proposal seeks funding to continue this design in 2010 with the first repeat longitudinal wave on the half of the sample who first received it in 2006.
In addition, we propose modest new activities in other high-priority areas involving the now-available Medicare linkage and further extensions of employer and pension plan linkages for the study of retirement.
