This book summarizes findings from the National Health and Nutrition Survey Epidemiologic Follow-up Study (NHEFS) for persons 55 years of age and older at initial examination. This is the first prospective study of health and health-related behaviour in a representative sample of the US population.Included in the follow-up study approximately 10 years later were all 14,407 participants who were examined at baseline in 1971-1974 (National Health and Nutrition Survey I-NHANES I). This book reports on the 5,215 individuals who were 55-74 years of age at baseline and who could be traced for further examination.The prospective nature of this research permits the authors to estimate the incidence of new disease, to examine changes in health related behaviour over time, and to access the probability of subsequent disease, given the presence of risk factors at baseline. Their analyses provide new insights into disease causation and outcome in an aging population in the US.

Industry Reviews

"The data provide information on both the prevalence and incidence of disease, linking outcomes to risk factors. A valuable resource . . . to health care providers in the community as well as health planners who are designing systems to meet the needs of a rapidly aging population." --American Journal of Public Health "This is a valuable guide to the important data in this monumental study." --Annals of Internal Medicine "Provides a wealth of data that can be used as a basis for planning future research and health promotion programs. . . .Provides essential background information for those interested in the health of the elderly and for those planning to initiate research studies related to the elderly." --Journal of the American Dietetic Association "An excellent contribution. . . .Provides highly substantial basic information about the health and well being of the elderly. As such, it will prove valuable to those engaged in planning health care services for older persons and as a foundation for all related research and clinical studies." --PRIDE Institute Journal of Long Term Home Health Care "The book has a wealth of information and references about the causation of disease. . .a good example of a well-planned study. It would be of use to all those engaged in epidemiological work." --INternational Journal of Epidemiology "Excellent reference text providing longitudinal information on a cohort of geriatric patients."--G. Paul Eleazer, MD, University of South Carolina
