This follow-up to the NATIONAL SURVEY OF SELF-CARE AND AGING: BASELINE, 1990-1991 (ICPSR 6718) was conducted in 1994 to continue examination of the health status and self-care practices of individuals aged 65 or older who were interviewed at baseline during 1991. Telephone interviews (Part 1) were conducted with individuals who were interviewed at baseline. A proxy was interviewed if the subject was too ill or cognitively unable to respond. Included were questions about the type and extent of self-care behaviors for activities of daily living, management of chronic conditions (through self-care activities, equipment use, and environmental modifications), and medical self-care for acute conditions, along with questions regarding change in health status since baseline, health service utilization, nursing home visits, and sociodemographic/economic status. For subjects who had been institutionalized since baseline (Part 2), interviews were conducted with proxies. Information was gathered regarding demographic status, living arrangements prior to institutionalization, and reasons f or institutionalization. For subjects who had died since baseline (Part 3), information was again gathered through interviews with proxies. Questions covered nursing home admissions and date and place of death. Part 4 consists of data from interviews conducted at baseline (ICPSR 6718) merged with interviews conducted at this follow-up.
