Biomaterial

Biomaterials and aging


In the table below, entries in the left column refer to the related documentation, while the numbers in the cells of columns LASA-B to LASA-I refer to the corresponding LASA-data files (e.g. '850' in column B refers to 'LASAB850'). Underlined entries are hyperlinks, hovering with your mouse over the underlined waves will show you the years in which the corresponding measurements took place.

For LASA-3B (cohort 3, Baseline) some files are not yet available since processing of the underlying data is still in progress. In 2015 a new measurement has been started containing respondents from cohorts 1, 2, and 3: the I-wave (Under Construction). In this wave, no Biomaterial sampling was done.

More details about the LASA-waves, see LASA-introduction.
