Age 50 survey

We are hoping to launch the Age 50 Survey later this year.

We will continue to follow advice from Public Health England about coronavirus (COVID-19). We may be required to change some of our plans for the Age 50 Survey as the situation develops. If plans change, we will notify you by email and on our website. In order to stay in the loop, please keep your contact details up to date by filling out the online contact form.

What we will ask

The survey will involve an interview that will take around 80 minutes. We will ask you questions about your family and relationships, income and employment, and other areas. As part of the interview, you will be asked to complete a series of assessments that test your memory, concentration, and other aspects of cognitive ability.

We will also invite you to complete a paper questionnaire. This should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete, asking you about, among other things, your leisure activities, attitudes, and health. We will kindly ask that you complete this before your interview.

After your interview, we will invite you to complete a short online questionnaire about your diet on two days following your interview. This should take no longer than 15 minutes on each day.
