Performance Based Summary Measures

Performance based summary measures have been created for inclusion on the NHATS public use data file. Summary measures include the Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB), as well as scores for grip strength and peak air flow. The technical paper describes the methodology used to create these measures and provides round 1 descriptive statistics. The addendum to the technical paper provides SAS programming statements that were used to construct the summary measures.
