New Longitudinal and Cross-Sectional NSOC Data Released

We are pleased to announce a new data release from the National Study of Caregiving.

This data release includes a set of longitudinal data files that include re-interviews of NSOC II (2015) caregivers.

This data release also includes final cross-sectional files of family and unpaid helpers identified in the round 7 National Health and Aging Trends Study (NHATS). The files consist of caregivers active in the last month or year, including last month of life caregivers.
