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-J refer to the corresponding LASA-data files (e.g. ‘026‘ in column B refers to ‘LASAB026‘). Table entries are hyperlinks. Hovering  over the waves in the header will show the years in which the corresponding measurements took place.

For more details about the LASA-waves, see Design LASA.

* Files in the 700 series contain data from telephone interviews held with respondents, while files
in the 600 series contain data from telephone interviews held with proxies. In wave C however, the same
questionnaire was used for both respondent and proxy; data was stored in the 600 series.

** Not yet documented

Meta-emotion was moved from the main interview in wave B (LASAB029) to the medical interview in wave 2B (LAS2B143).
