NorLAG Den norske studien av livsløp, aldring og generasjon

About NorLAG

The Norwegian study on Lifecourse, Ageing and Generation (NorLAG) is a longitudinal study including data on e.g. self-rated health, work and retirement, wellbeing, care and family relations in the second half of life (age 40+).

NorLAG provides high quality and updated data on ageing and age-related changes in Norway in the 21st century. So far three waves of survey data collection have been conducted (in 2002, 2007 and 2017). NorLAG covers broad information on core life domains for a total of 11,028 respondents born between 1922 and 1966, as well as their close family (partner, parents, and children). Survey data are linked to annual data from the public registers. The combination of longitudinal surveys with updated registry information provides a unique opportunity for researchers from different disciplines to study the causes and consequences of timing and sequencing of transitions in individual life courses.
