Description:
The Irish Longitudinal study on Ageing (TILDA) is a major research undertaking with the potential to radically alter thinking, to enhance policy-making and to promote research and development opportunities in Ireland and elsewhere. In successful models around the world, the results from ongoing longitudinal studies on ageing are considered the primary source of information when governments, decision makers and key community organisations seek to implement change on behalf of the ageing population. It is my hope that TILDA will become such a pivotal resource for Ireland. As such, this document is intended to inform the research community about the TILDA design and its content, focusing specifically on the justification of its key investigation areas and methodology choices and how these compare to international standards. It has proved a rather complicated task to decide what to include here and how best to present our project. TILDA collects economic, health and social data across a variety of research questions using several modalities. For example, health information, both subjective and objective, is collected and recorded in the Computer-Aided Personal Interview (CAPI) and Self-Completion Questionnaires (SCQ) and in the Health Assessment (HA). The benefit of this methodology is that researchers can triangulate phenomena about an area of inquiry using data collected in different ways. This report is organised by modality (i.e. type of questionnaire or assessment) rather than by content area. This will allow researchers to understand the data respondents provide in the sequence in which it is collected.
