Study information

logo ELSA

ELSA (English Longitudinal Study of Ageing) is a unique and rich resource of information on the health, social, wellbeing and economic circumstances of the English population aged 50 and older.

METADAC will consider all applications for genetic information linked with other ELSA derived variables. If you do not require linkage, most ELSA derived variables are available to researchers via the UK Data Service.

For more detailed enquiries on the available resources, please visit the ELSA website or contact Nina Rogers.
