Health, Aging, and Retirement in Thailand

Health, Aging, and Retirement in Thailand (HART) was funded by the National Research Commission of Thailand as a pilot project in preparation for a biannual panel database. It is a multidisciplinary survey on the health, employment, socioeconomic status, and social and financial supports within family networks of individuals aged 45 years and older. A stratified random sampling of 1,400 households was selected from Bangkok, its vicinity, and Khon-Khaen province. The pilot baseline survey of 1,500 household samples was conducted during August– October 2009 by interviewing, face-to-face, one member aged 45 or older from each household. In 2011, a second pilot HART project received a one-year research grant from the National Higher Education Commission (NHEC).
