The National Survey of Midlife Development in the United States (MIDUS) is a national longitudinal study of a wide age range of Americans. MIDUS 1 (1995-1996) includes information on roughly 7,000 individuals aged 25-74, and MIDUS II (2004-2006) includes about 5,000 respondents aged 35-86. Numerous topical areas available in MIDUS, measures particularly relevant to older adulthood, are shown in this snapshot such as marital/relationship status and history, dyadic relationship quality, relationship with children, social support, and care-giving.
