PolSenior, the widest multidisciplinary research project, was conducted by the consortium of six research teams with researchers in the fields of medicine, biology, epidemiology, sociology, social policy, demography, economy and many other disciplines. The representative sample of 5695 participants aged 55–59 years (719 persons as the control group) and 65 years or more (4979 persons) gives the possibility not only to formulate a diagnosis about the health and social condition of the elderly in Poland. Another aim of this project was to assign priorities for the public administration and society for the formulation of basics of policy towards the elderly people. Each of the participants was visited three times. During the visit they answered different questions about medical and social aspects of their life. Also some tests concerning the mental and physical efficiency were conducted.
