Project: Data set will be used to examine ADL and IADL patterns of older adults in Ireland. Data will be examined to identify trends in ability to complete ADL and IADL activites across different age categories and to examine differences in ability between males and females according to general health status. Physical, cognitive and social factors that may influence ADL and IADL ability will be examined. As I have already examined wave 1 data for factors impacting on ADL and IADL, comparisons will be made between wave 1 and wave 2 data. 

This research project is also recorded under the theme: Ageing and Mortality.
