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.
- Baseline Questionnaire
This is the original questionnaire mailed in 1995-1996 to 3.5 million AARP members that established a cohort of 566,398 persons.
- Risk Factor Questionnaire
This questionnaire contains questions about past diet and other health-related information. The Risk Factor cohort contains 334,905 persons.
- Follow-up Questionnaire
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.
We are currently accepting proposals for projects.
