Resource for Researchers

This page is a resource for researchers who would like to be involved in the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study. The study was developed by the Nutritional Epidemiology Branch of the National Cancer Institute, a component of the National Institutes of Health, to improve our understanding of the relationship between diet and health.

Questionnaires:

  • Baseline Questionnaire Icon indicating linked file is archived content This is the original questionnaire mailed in 1995-1996 to 3.5 million AARP members that established a cohort of 566,407 persons.
  • Risk Factor Questionnaire Icon indicating linked file is archived content This questionnaire contains questions about past diet and other health-related information. There were 327,803 risk questionnaires returned.
  • Follow-up Questionnaire Icon indicating linked file is archived content This questionnaire was sent to all living participants in the baseline cohort at the end of September 2004. It asked participants about their physical activity, retirement status, medication use (including hormones), cancer status and other non-cancer endpoints, and family history of cancer.
