Abstract

The first follow-up survey of The Health and Employment After Fifty (HEAF) took place in 2014. It aimed to assess changes from baseline in: job circumstances, with reasons (e.g., job loss, new job, job modification, for health-related or other reasons); health (e.g., changes in SRH, BSI, CES-D, MWBS, frailty, memory); and attitudes towards retirement (including those modified by spouse’s health and employment). Additional follow-up information on hospital referrals, new diagnoses, new treatments and new workplace injuries collected from CPRD files, by record linkage.
