Summary
The Study of Women's Health Across the Nation (SWAN) is a multi-site longitudinal, epidemiologic study designed to examine the health of women during their middle years. The study examines the physical, biological, psychological and social changes during this transitional period. The goal of SWAN's research is to help scientists, health care providers and women learn how mid-life experiences affect health and quality of life during aging. Data were collected about doctor visits, medical conditions, medications, treatments, medical procedures, relationships, smoking, and menopause related information such as age at pre-, peri- and post-menopause, self-attitudes, feelings, and common physical problems associated with menopause. The study began in 1994. Between 2006 and 2008, 2,245 of the 3,302 women that joined SWAN were seen for their tenth follow-up visit. The research centers are located in the following communities: Ypsilanti and Inkster, MI (University of Michigan), Boston, MA (Massachusetts General Hospital), Chicago, IL (Rush Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center), Almaeda and Contra Costa County, CA (University of California, Davis and Kaiser Permanente), Los Angeles, CA (University of California, Los Angeles), Hackensack, NJ (Hackensack University Medical Center) and Pittsburgh, PA (University of Pittsburgh). SWAN participants represent five racial/ethnic groups and a variety of backgrounds and cultures. Though the New Jersey site was still part of the study, data was not collected from this site for the tenth visit. Demographic and background information includes age, language of interview, marital status, household composition, and employment
