description:
This survey, a follow-up to the original Wave I survey undertaken in 1987 (ICPSR 6842), was designed to create a panel dataset for use in cross-cultural analyses of aging in Japan and the United States. It was created to match as closely as possible with Wave I, while also allowing for growth in specific areas of interest. In addition, the survey was designed to be partially comparable in content with AMERICANS' CHANGING LIVES: WAVES I, II, III, AND IV, 1986, 1989, 1994, AND 2006 (ICPSR 4690) and the NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY, 1984: SUPPLEMENT ON AGING (ICPSR 8659). The survey has nine sections: demographics (age, sex, marital status, education, employment), social integration (interpersonal contacts, social supports), health status (limitations on daily life and activities, health conditions, level of physical activity), subjective well-being and mental health status (life satisfaction, morale), psychological indicators (life events, locus of control, self-esteem), financial situation (financial status), memory (measures of cognitive functioning), and interviewer observations (assessments of respondents).
