ICPSR introduces new Archive of Data on Disability to Enable Policy and research (ADDEP)

ICPSR is happy to announce the creation of its new archive on disability. The Archive of Data on Disability to Enable Policy and research (ADDEP, pronounced like adept without the 't') will include longitudinal datasets that make it easier to follow the onset of disability and changes in functional status that occur over time.

NEW PUBLICATION - SEBAS

Researchers for the Social Environment and Biomarkers of Aging Study (SEBAS) have just published an informative cohort profile of their study. SEBAS is a nationally representative longitudinal survey of Taiwanese middle-aged and older adults. It adds the collection of biomarkers and performance assessments to the Taiwan Longitudinal Study of Aging (TLSA), a nationally representative study of adults aged 60 and over, including the institutionalized population.

The article is published in the International Journal of Epidemiology and represents an excellent introduction to the purpose, research findings and value of SEBAS as a research study.

Weinstein.  (2014).  “Cohort Profile: The Social Environment and Biomarkers of Aging Study (SEBAS) in Taiwan.”  International Journal of Epidemiology.  doi: 10.1093/ije/dyu179
The article can be viewed electronically at: http://ije.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2014/09/08/ije.dyu179.abstract if your institution subscribes to this journal. You can also visit the SEBAS website at Georgetown University for more information about accessing this article and the SEBAS study itself.  (http://cph.georgetown.edu/taiwan.html )
Any researcher interested in gaining access to the SEBAS study is welcome to contact the NACDA Director directly atjmcnally@umich.edu and we will assist you in obtaining this study for your own research.
