Several biopsychosocial components of successful aging have been identified across cohorts of older adults. However, the way successful aging is operationalized in these studies differs greatly, which impacts the variables that researchers choose to investigate. In the literature regarding successful aging, disability and/or physical functioning (commonly measured by self-reported activities of daily living) is the most frequently discussed component. To complement the data regarding biological components, researchers have examined psychological, social, and environmental variables that may relate to successful aging. These include well-being and life satisfaction, social engagement, personal resources (e.g., level of independence), and extrinsic factors (e.g., environmental and financial resources). For instance, ratings of life satisfaction and well-being, as well as social and productive functioning, are commonly measured components of successful aging.

Dear MEL professionals, would you please help me out with the odd data? For example, in a survey about low-income parents, the column of age has some strange values, such as 120.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
