Technological Enhancements and Archiving for Surveys of the Elderly: STTR (R41/42) Initiative: The National Institute on Aging has supported longitudinal survey data collection efforts and behavioral interventions in areas such as cognition, genetics, long term care, retirement and economic status, caregiving, behavioral medicine, and the dynamics of health and functional change at older ages. See for descriptions of publicly available databases for aging-related secondary analyses supported by the NIA. 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. The value of population surveys and behavioral interventions addressing health issues increases markedly with the addition of biological information (see Cells and Surveys, Should Biological Measures be Included in Social Science Research? National Research Council 2000). Since the Cells and Surveys report, the collection of biological data and performance measures (in addition to demographic, socioeconomic, cognitive, attitudinal and health data) from individuals in household surveys have become increasingly common. Survey researchers have, therefore, had to adapt existing technologies in order to collect biomarkers in the field, and are often limited when attempting to collect samples in remote developing country settings.

Is independently owned and operated, is not dominant in the field of operation in which it is proposing, has a place of business in the United States and operates primarily within the United States or makes a significant contribution to the US economy, and is organized for profit. 2. Is at least 51 percent owned and controlled by one or more individuals who are citizens of, or permanent resident aliens in, the United States. 3. Has, including its affiliates, an average number of employees for the preceding 12 months not exceeding 500, and meets the other regulatory requirements found in 13 C.F.R. Part 121. Business concerns are generally considered to be affiliates of one another when either directly or indirectly, (a) one concern controls or has the power to control the other; or (b) a third-party/parties controls or has the power to control both. Control can be exercised through common ownership, common management, and contractual relationships. The term "affiliates" is defined in greater detail in 13 C.F.R. 121.103. The term "number of employees" is defined in 13 C.F.R. 121.106.
