The wealth of data in the 45 and Up Study provides researchers with unprecedented opportunities to understand how Australians are ageing. Almost 600 researchers are using the Study and more than 215 research papers have been published to date.

Projects under way using the data are investigating a wide range of important health issues and yielding many important findings.

Here you will find a full list of publications associated with the Study. Please note that some of these papers link to abstracts only; you will need to pay or use your organisation’s site license to read the full text.
