New data to be collected within the NEAR projects

The different regional projects within The Swedish National study on Aging and Care (SNAC) have begun their 7th wave of data collection 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 olds.

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 is expected to continue in 2020 and the last surveys will be 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 90 will begin in the autumn of 2020.
– In the H95+ cohort, a survey of the cohort born 1923-24 at the age of 95 was completed in 2019. Survey at 97 years starts in the autumn of 2020.
– In the KVUS Survey, a 50-year follow-up  was completed in 2019. The 52-year follow-up will begin in the autumn of 2020.

The SWEOLD project is preparing pilot interviews for their 6th wave to be conducted soon, with a planned start in late March, 2020.
