Study of Women’s Health Across the Nation (SWAN), 1996-1997: Baseline Dataset

Study of Women’s Health Across the Nation (SWAN), 1996-1997: Baseline Dataset is now available from the National Archive of Computerized Data on Aging.

The Study of Women’s Health Across the Nation (SWAN), is a multi-site longitudinal, epidemiologic study designed to examine the health of women during their middle years. The study examines the physical, biological, psychological, and social changes during this transitional period. The goal of SWAN’s research is to help scientists, health care providers, and women learn how mid-life experiences affect health and quality of life during aging. The data include questions about doctor visits, medical conditions, medications, treatments, medical procedures, relationships, smoking, and menopause related information such as age at pre-, peri- and post-menopause, self-attitudes, feelings, and common physical problems associated with menopause.

Note this is restricted data, requiring the completion of a user agreement, and is distributed on CD-ROM
