Summary View help for Summary
The CLHLS community datasets are auxiliary to the follow-up datasets of Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey (CLHLS) during the seven waves (1998, 2000, 2002, 2005, 2008, 2011, and 2014), which were collected by the Center for Healthy Aging and Development Studies (CHADS) of National School of Development at Peking University from a wide variety of publicly issued statistical yearbooks in China. The 1998-2014 CLHLS community datasets are based on the county-level areas where the elderly respondents of the same waves are living, which covers 23 provinces and more than 860 counties/districts. The CLHLS community datasets contain information about the geographical environment, population, economic conditions, social welfare statistics, etc. of province-level areas where the elderly respondents are living.
