Harmonized Cognitive Assessment Protocol

This project is supported by the US National Institute on Aging (R01 AG056329) and coordinated by the Max Planck Institute for Social Law and Social Policy (PI Axel Boersch-Supan, Project Leader Salima Douhou). It has administered in-depth measurement of cognition according to the Harmonized Cognitive Assessment Protocol (HCAP) that has been developed for the HRS-style aging surveys supported by NIA. Using these data, the project is estimating prevalence rates of mild and severe cognitive impairment in the SHARE countries; compare these with HRS and other participants in the HCAP studies; and exploit the international variation of the SHARE plus SHARE-HCAP data in order to identify which interactions of biomedical and socioeconomic conditions over the life course affect cognition later in life.
