Longitudinal Aging Study in India
The Longitudinal Aging Study in India (LASI) focuses on the health, economic, and social well-being of India's elderly population. LASI is conceptually comparable to the Health and Retirement Study (HRS) in the United States and is appropriately harmonized with other health and retirement studies, including its sister surveys in Asia - such as the Chinese Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study (CHARLS) and the Korean Longitudinal Study of Aging (KLoSA) - thereby allowing for cross-country comparison. LASI also takes account of features unique to India, including its institutional and cultural characteristics.
