TILDA COVID-19 dataset now available

9 September 2021

The Irish Social Science Data Archive (ISSDA) are pleased to announce the addition of the The Irish Longitudinal study on Ageing (TILDA) COVID-19 Study, 2020 to our archive.


This dataset examines the experiences of adults aged 60 years and older during the first few months of the recent Coronavirus pandemic. As well as information on changes to normal day activities due to social-distancing and other restrictions on social interactions, we examine how these alterations to peoples’ lives have impacted on their physical and mental wellbeing. The study also records peoples’ exposure to the virus as well as that of their families and friends.

This study was funded by The Atlantic Philanthropies, Department of Health, Irish Life plc and the Health Research Board under the Rapid Response Research and Innovation Fund.
