Cross Series Cognitive Comparisons in the NACDA Colectica Portal

You might know that in addition to providing data and documentation through ICPSR, that 

NACDA also hosts a Colectica portal. Within the NACDA Colectica Portal,

users can view variable metadata across longitudinal datasets side-by-side,

allowing for convenient discovery of data collected over time on aging populations. 

For the NSHAP data within our portal, users can even create custom datasets and documents 

with only the variables they wish to use. 

Now, we have a new feature available - Cross Series Cognitive Comparisons!

Users can explore variables related to cognition, health,  and other topics across both NSHAP and NHATS!!

That means looking across three waves of the National Social Life, Health, and Aging Project (NSHAP)

and eight rounds of the National Health and Aging Trends Study (NHATS)!
