This dataset comprises the fourth follow-up of the baseline Hispanic EPESE (HISPANIC ESTABLISHED POPULATIONS FOR THE EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDIES OF THE ELDERLY, 1993-1994: [ARIZONA, CALIFORNIA, COLORADO, NEW MEXICO, AND TEXAS] [ICPSR 2851]). The baseline Hispanic EPESE collected data on a representative sample of community-dwelling Mexican-Americans, aged 65 years and older, residing in the five southwestern states of Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas. The primary purpose of the series was to provide estimates of the prevalence of key physical health conditions, mental health conditions, and functional impairments in older Mexican Americans and to compare these estimates with those for other populations. The Hispanic EPESE provides data on risk factors for mortality and morbidity in Mexican Americans in order to contrast how these factors operate differently in non-Hispanic White Americans, African Americans, and other major ethnic groups. The public-use data cover demographic characteristics (age, sex, type of Hispanic race, income, education, marital status, number of children, employment, and religion), height, weight, social and physical functioning, chronic conditions, related health problems, health habits, self-reported use of dental, hospital, and nursing home services, and depression. Subsequent follow-ups provide a cross-sectional examination of the predictors of mortality, changes in health outcomes, and institutionalization, and other changes in living arrangements, as well as changes in life situations and quality of life issues. During this 5th Wave, 2004-2005, reinterviews were conducted either in person or by proxy, with 1,167 of the original respondents. This 4th follow-up includes an additional sample of 902 Mexican Americans aged 75 and over with higher average-levels of education than those of the surviving cohort, increasing the total number of respondents to 2,069. By diversifying the cohort of those aged 75 and older, a better understanding can be gained of the influence of socioeconomic and cultural variations on the lives and health of older Mexican Americans.
The public-use data files in this collection are available for access by the general public. Access does not require affiliation with an ICPSR member institution.

Scope of Study
Subject Terms: demographic characteristics, ethnicity, health behavior, health problems, health status, Hispanic or Latino Americans, life expectancy, living arrangements, mental health, Mexican Americans, mortality rates, older adults, population characteristics, quality of life
The Resource Book of the Hispanic Established Populations for Epidemiologic Studies of the Elderly may be obtained from earlier Hispanic EPESE collections (i.e., ICPSR 4314, 4102, 3385, 2851).
Users of these data should note when doing analyses -- the scales for the following items should be reversed: X5CESD4, X5CESD8, X5CESD12, AND X5CESD16.
Hispanic EPESE, 1993-1994 (ICPSR 2851), was modeled after the design of -- ESTABLISHED POPULATIONS FOR EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDIES OF THE ELDERLY, 1981-1993: [EAST BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, IOWA AND WASHINGTON COUNTIES, IOWA, NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT, AND NORTH CENTRAL NORTH CAROLINA] (ICPSR 9915) and ESTABLISHED POPULATIONS FOR EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDIES OF THE ELDERLY, 1996-1997: PIEDMONT HEALTH SURVEY OF THE ELDERLY, FOURTH IN-PERSON SURVEY [DURHAM, WARREN, VANCE, GRANVILLE, AND FRANKLIN COUNTIES, NORTH CAROLINA] (ICPSR 2744).
The first follow-up of the baseline data (Hispanic EPESE Wave II, 1995-1996 [ICPSR 3385]) followed 2,438 of the original 3,050 respondents, and the second follow-up (Hispanic EPESE Wave III, 1998-1999 [ICPSR 4102]) followed 1,980 of these respondents. The third follow-up, Hispanic EPESE Wave IV [ICPSR 4314] followed 1,682 of the original respondents.

Presence of Common Scales: MMSE, CES-D, IADL, ADL, CLOX, CAGE, Neighborhood items from the Los Angeles Family and Neighborhood Study (Sastry 2006), from the Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (Sampson et al. 1997), and from The Social Cohesion and Trust scale (Sampson 1997).
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
- Performed consistency checks.
- Created variable labels and/or value labels.
- Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
