Welcome! Would you like access to free survey data on aging?

Are you interested in studying aging populations throughout the world? Have you been looking for user-friendly, large-scale, public-use datasets for teaching or research? Come check out the Gateway to Global Aging Data (!

The Gateway to Global Aging Data is a platform for population survey data on aging, with the goal of facilitating longitudinal or cross-national comparative research using the family of Health and Retirement Studies around the world. These longitudinal surveys interview individuals approximately 50 and older across 5 continents and cover a wide range of topics ranging from health, cognition, and healthcare utilization, to employment, wealth, and income, and even cover their anthropometric measurements, life history, end of life, and experience during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Gateway provides all the tools you need to get started, including a searchable library of survey questionnaires, concordance tables and working papers detailing cross-wave and cross-survey differences, and publications based on the HRS family of surveys. The Gateway also creates Harmonized datasets representative of 38 countries across the world, which contain comparably defined variables, enabling cross-national and longitudinal analyses. You can even produce weighted population-level estimates in informative graphs and tables on our website of key harmonized measures across time and countries.

The Gateway also conducts regular webinars, introducing users to its tools and data and illustrating cross-country and longitudinal analyses, and recently launched a blog series, providing information about the Gateway and the HRS family of surveys. If you have a question that isn’t already answered in our FAQ, then email our helpdesk (, and one of our team members will get back to you as soon as possible.

Supported by the NIA, this wealth of information is available to all users for FREE! Come check out the Gateway to Global Aging Data today!
