Technical reports

Technical reports provide information about the methodology and outputs of the Health, Work and Retirement Study.

As the Health and Ageing Research Team (HART) has collaborated with other partners on particular projects, the New Zealand Health, Work and Retirement Study has also been known as the New Zealand Longitudinal Study of Ageing (NZSLA) and the Independence Contribution Connection (ICC) study. These projects have been led or co-led by HART and have fallen under the broader focus, resources and participant base of the New Zealand Health, Work and Retirement Study.
