Current WLS Activities

In-Person interviews of the class members and one of their siblings began in March of 2010 and concluded in December of 2012. The instrument includes updates of participants work and family lives, repeated cognition measures and new physical and functioning measures. Participants were also invited to complete a leave behind self-administered questionnaire, sign social security and medicare record access waivers, and donate a saliva sample if they haven't yet done so. The data from this wave were first included in WLS version 13.01 and were made available to all users on September 6, 2013.

We will seek funding for another wave.
