Abstract:

The Piedmont Health Survey of the Elderly is a multiyear study sponsored by the National Institute on Aging as one of the components of the Established Populations for Epidemiologic Studies of the Elderly (EPESE). The goals of the EPESE project were to describe and identify predictors of mortality, hospitalization, and placement in long-term care facilities and to investigate risk factors for chronic diseases and loss of functioning. The original survey, ESTABLISHED POPULATIONS FOR EPIDEMIOLOGIC STUDIES OF THE ELDERLY, 1981-1993: [EAST BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, IOWA AND WASHINGTON COUNTIES, IOWA, NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT, AND NORTH CENTRAL NORTH CAROLINA] (ICPSR 9915), elicited information from persons 65 years of age and older. Six follow-ups were conducted, and information from death certificates for deaths occurring in the first six years of follow-up for all four sites was also collected. The data included in this release of the EPESE make up the seventh follow-up and the fourth in-person interview for the North Carolina site. This North Carolina cohort, established in a 1986-1987 baseline survey, was a sample of persons 65 or older residing in households in Durham, Warren, Franklin, Granville, and Vance counties in the Central Piedmont area of North Carolina. The North Carolina site was the only EPESE site in the southeastern United States. This site was unique in that the baseline cohort was over 50-percent Black, and the geographic area selected was diverse, allowing both racial and urban/rural comparisons to be made regarding the distribution of certain risk factors and disease. The data cover demographic characteristics (age, sex, race, income, education, marital status, number of children, employment, and religion), height, weight, social and physical functioning, chronic conditions, related health problems, health habits, self-reported use of dental, hospital, a ...
