Researchers used the data from the Health and Retirement Study to assess symptoms of depression in those between the age of 51 and 61 who were not depressive at the beginning of the study. The state of each subject's emotions was evaluated periodically with specific attention paid to the connection between their emotions and a recent medical diagnosis.
