ready Mexican Health and Aging Study

Abbreviation:MHAS

General Information
The MHAS study is a series of questionnaires distributed in waves, the fourth of which was fielded in the Fall of 2015. Research goals include, but are not limited to the following: examination of the aging processes and its disease and disability burden in a large representative panel of older Mexicans; evaluation of the effects of individual behaviors, early life circumstances, migration and economic history, community characteristics, and family transfer systems on multiple health outcomes; and comparison of the health dynamics of older Mexicans with comparably aged Mexican-born migrants in the U.S. and second generation Mexican-American using similar data from the U.S. population (for example the biennial Health and Retirement Study HRS) to assess the durability of the migrant health advantage.
