The first national wave of the LASI provides in-depth data on ageing, economic aspects, health status, social relationships, social support, family, and life satisfaction to help determine the specific needs, circumstances, and views of ageing adults in the light of changing social and familial circumstances. All measures, while specific and sensitive to the Indian context, have been harmonized to the greatest possible extent with its international sister surveys on ageing and retirement. This is done in order to provide a valuable source for comparison and to work towards providing a comprehensive picture of population ageing in India and comparative studies of global population ageing. The LASI Wave 1 is a nationally representative survey of 72,250 older adults age 45 and above across all states and union territories of India. The data collection activities for the wave 1 was carried between April 2017 to December 2018.
The data and findings of the LASI wave 1 are now available for the researchers and policymakers.LASI Wave-1 Publications :
