I.Study Objective and Overview

Extending the healthy lifespan of the elderly is an important issue in this rapidly aging society. When considering health in old age, the significance of basic medical research, which investigates progression of aging, aging factors and factors associated with the onset of geriatric diseases, is extremely high. The objective of this study was to conduct a postal survey to investigate the current health status and daily living of the 2,267 participants who had taken part in the first wave (between 1997 and 2000) of the National Institute for Longevity Sciences - Longitudinal Study of Aging (NILS-LSA).
Participants in the NILS-LSA included randomly selected age- and sex-stratified individuals from the pool of non-institutionalized residents in the NILS neighborhood areas of Obu City and Higashiura Town in Aichi Prefecture. The first wave of the NILS-LSA was conducted from November 1997 to April 2000 and comprised 2,267 participants (1,139 men, 1,128 women; age range, 40-79 years).
In August 2013, self-administered questionnaire was mailed out to assess their health status. After excluding participants who died (identified through the Basic Resident Register or information from families), questionnaires were sent out to 1,933 individuals out of the 2,267 baseline participants.A total of 1,462 respondents (76% collection rate, March 2014) had replied. The breakdown of the 1,462 respondents by gender and age group are shown in Table 1. Apart from the 1462 respondents, the breakdown of the 471 individuals who had not responded was as follows: death (24 deaths reported on returned questionnaire) , withdrawal (1), address unknown (33) and no reply (413).
