Scope of Study
Geographic Coverage: United States
Universe: All respondents participating in: (1) MIDUS II (noninstitutionalized adults aged 35 to 85 living in contiguous United States); or (2) the Milwaukee African American sample (noninstitutionalized adults aged 35 to 85 living in Milwaukee, WI) were eligible to participate in the daily diary assessments.
The title of this study was changed from National Survey of Midlife in the United States (MIDUS II): Daily Stress Project, 2004-2009, to Midlife in the United States (MIDUS 2): Daily Stress Project, 2004-2009, on May 9, 2017.
Additional information about the Midlife Development in the United States study can be found at the MIDUS website.
Sample: The Daily Stress Project of MIDUS II contains data from 2,022 respondents. These respondents include three distinct groups, all of whom completed the Project 1 Survey: (1) longitudinal (n = 794), (2) expanded (n = 1,048), and (3) Milwaukee (n = 180). The longitudinal group included individuals who participated in the Daily Stress Project at Time 1, the expanded group consisted of Time 2 participants from all MIDUS subsamples (RDD, twins, siblings) who did not participate in the Daily Stress Project at Time 1, and the Milwaukee group contained individuals who participated in the baseline MIDUS Milwaukee study, initiated in 2005.
Response Rates: Completion rates (the denominator is the number of cases successfully completing the Project 1 Phone survey and Self-administered questionnaire, and eligible for Project 2) for the Daily Stress study are: longitudinal (67 percent), expanded (67 percent), and Milwaukee (61 percent).
