The different regional projects within The Swedish National study on Aging and Care (SNAC) have begun their 7th wave of data collections in 2019 and will continue into 2022. In this phase there is both a follow-up of previous participants and also a recruitment of new cohorts of 60- and 81- year old’s. The 8th wave of data collections started in the spring of 2022 for SNAC-B and SNAC-S, and will start in the fall of 2022 for SNAC-K and SNAC-N. The collections are planned to be finalized in 2024.
The Gothenburg population studies consist of several cohorts (H70, H85, H95+) and a Women’s Survey (KVUS).
– In the H70 cohort, data were collected at the age of 75 in 2019. This data collection continued in 2020 and the last surveys were completed in the spring of 2021.
– In the H85 cohort, surveys of the cohort born in 1930 at the age of 88 were completed in 2019. Investigation at the age of 92 will begin in the spring of 2022.
– In the H95+ cohort, a survey of the cohort born 1923-24 at the age of 95 was completed in 2019. Survey at 99 years starts in the spring of 2022.
– In the KVUS Survey, a 50-year follow-up was completed in 2019. The 54-year follow-up will begin in the spring of 2022.
The SWEOLD project started the 6th wave of data collection in 2021 and it will be finalized in April 2022. SWEOLD is partly based on a follow-up of persons who have previously been interviewed in the LNU, but who are now 76 years of age or older. Moreover, this year includes an additional selection of the very oldest (85+), as well as two regional samples in Dalarna and Stockholm.
