description:
The baseline Hispanic Established Populations for the Epidemiologic Studies of the Elderly (Hispanic EPESE, ICPSR 2851) was modeled after the design of ESTABLISHED POPULATIONS FOR EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDIES OF THE ELDERLY, 1981-1993: [EAST BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, IOWA AND WASHINGTON COUNTIES, IOWA, NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT, AND NORTH CENTRAL NORTH CAROLINA] (ICPSR 9915) and ESTABLISHED POPULATIONS FOR EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDIES OF THE ELDERLY, 1996-1997: PIEDMONT HEALTH SURVEY OF THE ELDERLY, FOURTH IN-PERSON SURVEY [DURHAM, WARREN, VANCE, GRANVILLE, AND FRANKLIN COUNTIES, NORTH CAROLINA] (ICPSR 2744). This data collection contains the two-year follow-up of the baseline Hispanic EPESE, which collected data on a representative sample of community-dwelling Mexican-American elderly, aged 65 years and older, residing in the five southwestern states of Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas. The primary purpose of the study was to provide estimates of the prevalence of key physical health conditions, mental health conditions, and functional impairments in older Mexican Americans and to compare these estimates with those for other populations. The Hispanic EPESE attempted to determine whether certain risk factors for mortality and morbidity operate differently in Mexican Americans than in non-Hispanic White Americans, African Americans, and other major ethnic groups. The public-use data cover demographic characteristics (age, sex, type of Hispanic race, income, education, marital status, number of children, employment, and religion ), height, weight, social and physical functioning, chronic conditions, related health problems, health habits, self-reported use of dental, hospital, and nursing home services, and depression. This two-year follow-up is a cross-sectional examination of the predictors of mortality, changes in health outcomes, institutionalization, and other changes in living arrangements, as well as changes in life situations and quality of life issues. The Medications file (Part 2) includes a listing of the medications, by brand name and classification of the drug, which were prescribed for the respondent. The vital status of respondents from baseline to this round of the survey may be determined using the Vital Status file (Part 3). This file contains interview dates from the baseline as well as vital status at Wave II (respondent survived, date of death if deceased, proxy-assisted, proxy-true).
