Longitudinal Study of Ageing and Health in the Philippines 

The Longitudinal Study of Ageing and Health in the Philippines (LSAHP) is the first multi-actor longitudinal study on ageing in the Philippines with information coming from older Filipinos, their caregivers, and adult children. The 2018 baseline data provides comprehensive information on the health, economic status, and overall well-being of a nationally representative sample of older Filipinos aged 60 and older. These data will be a valuable resource for the crafting of evidence-based policies and programmes for this sector of the population.

LSAHP is designed to (1) investigate the health status and well-being, as well as their correlates, of Filipinos aged 60 years and over; and (2) assess the determinants of health status and transitions in health status and overall well-being. The study is part of a comparative study of the Philippines and Viet Nam. LSAHP is funded by the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia and implemented by the Demographic Research and Development Foundation, Inc.

LSAHP Baseline Data

The baseline data on the health, economic status, and overall well-being of Filipinos aged 60 years and above were released by the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA) and the Demographic Research and Development Foundation, Inc.  (DRDF) in a webinar held on 7 July 2022.
