PAQUID is a prospective cohort study initiated in 1988 in South Western France to explore functional and cerebral ageing. This sample includes n=2561 subjects. Data contains a time-to-event, a type of event and two cognitive scores measured at baseline.

Format

A data frame with 2561 observations on the following 4 variables.

time

the time-to-event (in years).

status

the type of event 0 = censored, 1 = dementia onset and 2 = death without dementia.
