in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Swedish Adoption/Twin Study on Aging (SATSA) was designed to study the origins of individual differences in aging and the environmental and genetic factors that are involved. SATSA was begun in 1984, and six additional waves were conducted in 1987, 1990, 1993, 2004, 2007, and 2010. The questionnaire was initially sent to all twins from the Swedish Twin Registry who were separated at an early age and raised apart. There was also a control sample of twins who were raised together. They were surveyed on items that included health status, how they were raised, work environment, alcohol consumption, and dietary and smoking habits, as well as questions about personality and attitudes. Data were also collected starting with the second component from a subsample that was composed of 150 pairs of twins raised apart and 150 pairs of twins raised together. This subsample participated in four waves of in-person testing, which included a health examination, interviews, and tests on functional capacity, cognitive abilities, and memory....

in Undetermined and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection examines the fates of services funded under Title III of the Older Americans Act if and when that source of funding is terminated. The main objectives of the study were to investigate the pattern of continuation of projects funded under the Title III program, and the importance of various factors contributing to the continuation of Title III projects. Members of State agencies, area agencies and service providers in representative planning and service areas were interviewed. The study examines the extent to which projects actually had their Title III funds terminated, the providers' responses to termination, the actions precipitated by continuation at reduced levels, the extent of budgetary reductions, the impact of Title III funding termination on client group composition, and the effects of project types and services on project continuation. The study was funded by the Administration on Aging under Grant No. 90-A-1301. A total of 426 organizations that had received Title III funds were interviewed. The study covered 33 Planning and Service areas in 24 States and represented all ten Federal regions
