H85

This study is part of the collection NEAR - National E-Infrastructure for Aging Research in Sweden

Creator/Principal investigator(s):

Ingmar Skoog - University of Gothenburg, Institute of Neuroscience and Physiology

Description:

'H85' is one of the longitudinal studies from Gothenburg where representative populations of older people has been followed over a long period. (Information about the studies H70, 95+ and Kvinnoundersökningen KVUS can be found under the tab Related studies.)

This is a multidisciplinary study of representative samples of 85-year olds in Göteborg, which started in 1985 and is jointly managed by the Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology. In 1986-87 all 85-year-olds born between July 1, 1901 and June 30, 1902 and registered for census purposes in Gothenburg, Sweden, were invited to take part in a health control. Half of them were also examined by a psychiatrist (n=494). Follow-up studies have been done at ages 88, 90, 92, 95, 97, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104 and and the response rate has remained at 65-80%. Another cohort of 85-year-olds born July 1, 1923 till June 30, 1924 were examined from 2008 to 2010 (N = 572, response rate 60%). These will be followed up in the same way as 85-year-olds born in 1901-02. A new H85 study of the birth cohort born in 1930 is planned during 2015.
