The National Child Development Study (NCDS):

The National Child Development Study (NCDS) follows the lives of over 17,000 people born in England, Scotland and Wales in a single week of 1958. Also known as the 1958 Birth Cohort Study, it collects information on physical and educational development, economic circumstances, employment, family life, health behaviour, wellbeing, social participation and attitudes. A 14-item version of the scale was used when the respondents were aged 50 and a 6-item version was used when they were aged 55. The NCDS is managed by CLS

The study collects information on all aspects of health, economic and social circumstances from people aged 50 and over in a series of data collection waves once every two years. CASP-12v2 has appeared in the self-completion in both waves so far collected.

The Health, Work and Retirement Survey (HWR):

New Zealand’s Health, Work and Retirement (HWR) Longitudinal Study is a biennial government-funded study following a sample of middle-aged and young-old adults (aged 55-70) since 2006 in order to determine the factors that promote health and independence of older New Zealander’s in the transition from work to retirement, with a particular focus on successful ageing in older Māori (the indigenous people of New Zealand).
