Abstract (English)

This project aims at investigating the development of old-age health capital from an international perspective. It will identify life course factors associated with cognitive and physical performance and the prevalence of noncommunicable diseases of the 50+ population in Europe, the United States, and Asia using several comparable national panel surveys on health and aging.
