LGBTQ+ research using the CLSA platform

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

June is Pride Month in Canada. The Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) is an important scientific resource that includes data that can be used to address the health and well-being of individuals from midlife to older age who identify as LGBTQ+. In honour of Pride Month, the CLSA recognizes all those celebrating, including the participants, researchers, staff and supporters within LGBTQ+ communities who have contributed to the success of the CLSA.

As a national research platform on health and aging, the aim of the CLSA is to enable population-based research and evidenced-based decision-making that will lead to better health and well-being for all people living in Canada. The following projects and publications, in particular, use CLSA data to explore important questions related to aging and sexual and gender diversity:
