Demographics

Demographics and aging


In the table below, entries in the left column refer to the related documentation, while the values in the cells of columns LASA-B to LASA-I refer to the corresponding LASA-data files. 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-H (regular cohort 1+2), LASA-3B (cohort 3, Baseline), and LASA-MB (Migrants 1st cohort, 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 (still in progress). Note that the MB-cohort which was examined in 2013-2014 has its own sampling frame.

UC: Under Construction
