The English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA) is a multidisciplinary panel study that collects a comprehensive array of measures on a representative sample of men and woman aged 50 and over who are living in England. Repeated measures covering health, economics, psychology, lifestyle and social connections are collected from the same individuals over time, allowing researchers to study the dynamics of the ageing process.
