Histoire administrative

The Aging in Manitoba Longitudinal Study began in 1971 under the direction of Dr. Betty Havens, and was initially run through Manitoba Health and then through the University of Manitoba. It was funded by the provincial and federal governments. A.I.M. was a large-scale longitudinal panel study of older adults in Manitoba that included nearly 9000 participants throughout the province. The design of the study included three independent cross-sectional samples that were conducted in 1971, 1976, and 1983. These samples were subsequently followed in 1983-1984, 1990, 1996, 1997, 2001, 2005, and 2006. The interviews collected information on socio-demographic, social psychological, physical and mental health status and functioning, economics, leisure activities, care and support networks and consumption of services. Overall, A.I.M provided both cross-sectional and longitudinal data that represent 30 years of research on the experience of aging for older Manitobans. Research using A.I.M data has addressed such issues as social isolation and loneliness, self-perceived financial security, self-perceived health status, use of physical services, successful aging, formal and informal social support and care, and sample mortality. Dr. Betty Havens was the director and principal investigator of the Aging in Manitoba study from its inception in 1971 to her death in 2005, whereupon leadership of the study passed to Dr. Barbara Payne. The Aging in Manitoba Longitudinal Study concluded in 2007.
