Summary View help for Summary
The Stroke Recovery in Underserved Populations 2005-2006 study was created to address the National Institute on Aging (NIA) Request For Application entitled "Research on Mind-Body Interactions and Health" (RFA OD-03-008). It addressed the NIA interest in "the impact of optimism, happiness, or a positive attitude on well-being and health; and social functioning and health." The study examined how positive emotion (e.g., joy, gratitude, love, contentment) and social networks independently and interactively contribute to recovery of functional status after stroke within two underserved groups. The specific study aims were to:
- Examine recovery of functional status (motor and cognitive function), for White, African American and Hispanic persons with stroke discharged from rehabilitation facilities
- Examine the contributions of positive emotion and social networks on recovery of functional status (motor and cognitive function), for White, African American, and Hispanic persons with stroke discharged from rehabilitation facilities; and
- Examine the interaction between positive emotion and social networks on recovery of functional status (motor and cognitive function) for White, African American, and Hispanic persons with stroke discharged from rehabilitation facilities.
The data were collected by the IT Health Track at four time points: at admission and discharge from rehabilitation facility, and 80-180 days and 365-425 days after discharge. These data emphasize recovery of motor and cognitive functional status, positive emotion, and social networks
The dataset contains 226 variables and 1219 cases from 11 rehabilitation facilities across the United States.

Data Collection Notes View help for Data Collection Notes
This study was funded by the National Institute on Aging through grant number R01AG024806-05S1.
To protect the anonymity of respondents, all variables that could be used to identify individuals have been masked or recoded. For details regarding these changes, please refer to the Codebook Notes provided in the ICPSR Codebook in this data collection.
Please note that this data collection contains duplicate records. ICPSR created a CASEID variable which is a unique case identifier. Variable PAT_ID accounts for the duplicate records, while variable CASEID allows data users to analyze the data for each case.
All four of the longitudinal time points are included in the dataset. The following variable ending indication the time point associated with the variable.
- "_A" refers to admissions
- "_D" refers to discharge
- "_F" refers to 3 month follow-up
- "_Y" to the 12 month follow-up
Study Purpose View help for Study Purpose
The purpose of this study was to address the National Institute on Aging RFA "Research on Mind-Body Interactions and Health." The study aimed to identify and examine factors that may contribute to a narrowing of the health disparities that currently exist between underserved minority groups, African Americans and Hispanics, and whites. The study strives to contribute important insights into why some individuals with stroke do well and others do poorly.
Study Design View help for Study Design
The researchers targeted 16 rehabilitation facilities from the across Unites States with the objective of obtaining a large sample of racial and ethnic minorities represented.
Data were collected by the IT Health Track at four time points: at admission and discharge from the rehabilitation facility, and 80-180 days and 365-425 days after discharge.
Sample View help for Sample
The data were convenience sampled from 11 rehabilitation facilities that were targeted to obtain responses from African American, Hispanic and White persons.
