Tue, 07/03/2018 - 00:07
Funding Opportunity RFA-AG-19-019 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) invites applications for the next 5-year cycle of the National Health and Aging Trends Study (NHATS), the leading nationally representative, longitudinal, data resource in the US for research on trends, dynamics, and disparities in late-life disability, and for studies of the social and economic consequences of late-life disability for individuals, families and society, including caregiving and end-of-life issues. NHATS has conducted seven annual rounds of data collection to date (an eighth round is in process) and is linked to the separately-funded National Study of Caregiving (NSOC). The goals of the next cycle are to 1) Continue the current structure and design elements of NHATS; 2) Permit studies of long-term trends in disability prevalence; 3) Enrich measurement of cognitive capacity; 4) Enhance measurement of physical activity and sedentary behavior; 5) Continue linkages with administrative records; and 6) Augment data dissemination and user support.
