Module 1: AHEAD 1993 ADL Questions
Based on AHEAD 1995, wave 2, module 1. Most respondents who were asked to do this module in 1998 were asked to do the same module in AHEAD 1995. This module contains questions about difficulty and the use of equipment and help in activities of daily living. These questions were part of the core questions in AHEAD 1993.

Module 3: ADL Measures Used for the Longitudinal Studies of Aging (LSOA)
Based on AHEAD 1993, wave 1, module 3. Most respondents who were asked to do this module in 1998 were asked to do the same module in both AHEAD 1993 and AHEAD 1995. This module contains the ADL questions used in AHEAD 1993 and AHEAD 1995, which were in turn based on those proposed for (and subsequently used in) the second LSOA.

Module 4: ADL Measures Used for the National Long-Term Care Study (NLTCS)
Based on AHEAD 1993, wave 1, module 4. Most respondents who were asked to do this module in 1998 were asked to do the same module in AHEAD 1993; this was not a module in AHEAD 1995.

Module 5: The 1990 Census ADL questions
Based on AHEAD 1993, wave 1, module 5. Slightly less than half of the respondents who were asked to do this module in 1998 were asked to do the same module in AHEAD 1993 (most of the rest were asked to do module 6 in AHEAD 1993); this was not a module in AHEAD 1995.

Module 10: Cognitive Section for Proxy Interviewed Sample Members
Also included in the module section, although not actually a module, is a section labeled module 10. It is a section of the interview that is administered to sample persons for whom proxy interviews were done, but are willing and able to do this section themselves.
