Complex and large-scale socio-behavioral surveys related to adult health and aging are being developed all over the world. The demand for new, innovative technologies such as computer assisted interviewing, incorporation of biological and physiological measures, and user-friendly longitudinal databases associated with this trend has been expanding for several years. Longitudinal surveys often become more difficult to use over time due to increased complexity in the composition of the sample and/or the addition of new survey components, coupled with inconsistent data files and inadequate documentation. User friendly data use files are of interest not only to academic researchers, but to insurers, health care providers, HMOs, pharmaceutical companies and policy analysts.
