Interview Documentation

All ELSA interviews are conducted face-to-face using computer-assisted interviewing (CAPI), combined with self-completion questionnaires completed using pen and paper (PAPI). A CAPI interview and PAPI self-completion administered by an interviewer are carried out at every wave. A CAPI interview and collection of bio-measures by a qualified nurse are carried out at every other wave (data for waves 2, 4, 6 available to date).
