China has the largest number of elderly persons worldwide. For this book, scholars use the Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey datasets to answer numerous questions about aging so as to find clues to how we can all live longer, healthier lives.

""The research in this book captures the highlight of a decade of effort on CLHLS study and represents an important milestone in our emerging understanding of how individuals can endeavor to live a long, healthy life and how societies can help them do so."

The Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Study (CLHLS) was launched a decadeago. ProfessorZengYi, ProfessorXiao ZhenyuandI,withhelpfromvarious researchers at Peking University, the Chinese Academy of Social Science, Duke University, the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, and the University ofSouthernDenmark,coordinatedthedesignof thestudyand therequiredfundra- ing. The Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research provided some modest but crucial seed money. A continuing research grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA)of the U. S. NationalInstitutes of Health coveredinternationalresearch expenditures as well as some expenses in China; I was the original director of this grant, but Zeng Yi has now taken on that responsibility. The bulk of the effort in carrying out the surveya mammoth undertakingas well as much of the an- ysis in China was provided by Peking University and the other involved Chinese institutions. In our 1997 grant application to the NIA, we argued that it is important to study people 80 years old and olderthe oldest-oldbecause this segment of the p- ulation is rapidly growing, not only in developed countries but also in China and many other developing countries. United Nations statistics indicate that the global populationof the oldest-oldis growingat 3. 4percentannually. Because of thisrapid growth, the worlds oldest-old may number almost 200 million in 2030 and almost 400 million in 2050, comparedwith less than 70 million in 2000.
