Abstract [en]

Aim to present: an overview of the past, present and future activities within the

multidisciplinary cross-country GERDA project, and, research findings based on empirical

GERDA data published in international journals. The GERDA project started in 2000, at that

point titled Umeå 85+ study, and has since then collected empirical data among older people

in four waves. Data was collected in two ways (home visits to people 85 years of age and

older and postal surveys to people 65, 70, 75 and 80 years of age). The two most recent waves

of data collection were conducted in 2005 and 2010, a new wave of home visits started in

spring 2015 and longitudinal data-collection will be carried out during autumn 2015 with a

third wave of the GERDA survey. A high number of international publications originate from

GERDA home visits (several listed on web-page:, and two of the studies (nr. 2 and 4) will be

presented in the session. At present 11 publications are based on GERDA survey data, two of

which will be presented in the session (nr. 3 and 5). Other GERDA publications will be listed

for overview.
