The 2016 Harmonized Cognitive Assessment Protocol (HCAP) (Early, Version 1.0) is now available.
The 2016 Harmonized Cognitive Assessment Protocol is a substudy within the ongoing Health and Retirement Study. It is part of an ongoing international research collaboration funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA) that seeks to measure and understand dementia risk by collecting a carefully selected set of established cognitive and neuropsychological assessments and informant reports to better characterize cognitive function among older people. HCAP collects data from the target respondent and a knowledgeable informant.
The final sample included 3496 cases.
