Projects --- The Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey (CLHLS), which was supported by NIA/NIH grants R01 AG023627-01 (PI: Zeng Yi) and P01 AG 08761 (PI: Zeng Yi; Program Project Director: James W. Vaupel) was awarded to Duke University, with Chinese matching support for personnel costs and some local expenses. UNFPA and the China Social Sciences Foundation provided additional support for expanding the 2002 CLHLS survey. The Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research has provided support for international training since the CLHLS 1998 baseline survey. Finally, in December 2004 the China Natural Sciences Foundation and the Hong Kong Research Grants Council (RGC) partnered with NIA/NIH, providing grants to partially support the CLHLS project.
