Summary
The Sacramento Area Latino Study on Aging (SALSA Study) was a longitudinal cohort study of 1,789 community-dwelling Mexican Americans residing in California's Sacramento Valley who were aged 60-101 years at baseline in 1998-1999. Participants were followed every 12-15 months via home visits that included clinical and cognitive assessments. A semiannual phone call was made to obtain updates on medications, health events, and some sociodemographic risk factors. This study, Semi-Annual Phone Call Data, contains data from the six-month follow-up calls of the SALSA project. The SALSA project tracked the incidence of physical and cognitive impairment as well as dementia and cardiovascular diseases in elderly Latinos in the Sacramento, California region. The SALSA project aimed to assess cognitive, physical, and social functions, which include the ability to follow instructions, to perform certain movements, and to interact with others. The project explored the effects that cultural, nutritional, social, and cardiovascular risk factors have on overall health and dementia, and examined the association between diabetes and functional status. Demographic information collected in these data includes language and age given at follow-up visits
