Langa-Weir Classification of Cognitive Function

× Log in or create an account to download data files.

This is a researcher contributed dataset that provides a total summary score for cognition using measures from the core HRS interview as well as three derived categories: Normal, Cognitively Impaired but not Demented (CIND), and Demented. We refer to these as the Langa-Weir Classifications (Crimmins et al., 2011). HRS also makes use of proxy respondents to reduce sample attrition. Therefore, this dataset also includes scoring of cognition based on data from proxy respondent interviews.

HRS Researcher Contributions are provided by fellow researchers interested in sharing their work. Interested researchers are encouraged to contribute their own datasets by submitting them via electronic mail to HRS User Support. HRS does not produce these files and thus can not support them, nor be responsible for their content or use. They are provided here as a service to the research community.
