dc.description.abstractThis submission is composed of papers based upon a longitudinal study of ageing persons carried on in Edinburgh from 1968 to 1974. The subjects were 215 men and 272 women aged'63 -90 years who formed a simple random sample of the 27, 000 older people living in ten city wards in north Edinburgh in 1968. Examinations, relevant to this submission, were made by a physician, a psychiatrist and a dietician.en
dc.description.abstractThe first examination was made in 1968 -69 with reviews after one (1969 -70) and five (1973 -74) years. The project was designed to study physical and mental health over this period and to record certain measurements. The year 1967 was spent planning the study, validating the questionnaire and learning to make reproducible measurements.en
dc.description.abstractThe first examination yielded papers describing cross - sectional data in respect of respiratory symptoms and function, ischaemic heart disease, heart size, peripheral vascular disease, spinal curvature, vision, hearing, haematological variables, plasma urea, bowel habit, feet, urinary signs and symptoms, the ankle jerk, the androgyny score and diet related to health.en
dc.description.abstractThe review examinations provided papers describing longitudinal aspects of respiratory studies, ischaemic heart disease, heart size, blood pressure and stroke, vision, hearing, bone mass, height, body weight and skinfold thicknessen
dc.description.abstractOther papers were concerned with sampling, methods, the fate of the sample, factors related to mortality and the use of medical services.en
