Sacramento Area Latino Study on Aging (SALSA Study), 1996-2008: Semi-Annual Phone Call Data (ICPSR 29321) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

The Sacramento Area Latino Study on Aging (SALSA Study) project tracked the incidence of physical and cognitive impairment as well as dementia and cardiovascular diseases in elderly Latinos in the Sacramento, California, region. The SALSA project aimed to assess cognitive, physical and social functions, which include the ability to follow instructions, to perform certain movements, and to interact with others. The project explored the effects that cultural, nutritional, social, and cardiovascular risk factors have on overall health and dementia, and examined the association between diabetes and functional status. This study, Semi-Annual Phone Call Data, contains data from the six-month follow-up call of the SALSA project. Demographic information includes age given at follow-up visits, country of birth, language, religion, marital status, educational level, occupation, household income, and size of household.
