Victoria Longitudinal Study (ICPSR 117)

Principal Investigator(s): Dixon, Roger A., University of Alberta


The Victoria Longitudinal Study (VLS) is a large-scale multi-faceted investigation of human aging. The VLS examines late-life changes in numerous aspects of health, cognition, biological status, adaptivity, and psychosocial factors. Operating in two sites (Edmonton, Alberta, and Victoria, British Columbia), the VLS examines profiles, patterns, and predictors of age-related changes in healthy, community-dwelling middle-aged and older adults.
