The SWAN Public Use Datasets provide access to longitudinal data describing the physical, biological, psychological, and social changes that occur during the menopausal transition. Data collected from 3,302 SWAN participants from Baseline through the 10th Annual Follow-Up visit are currently freely available to the public. Users are able to download datasets in a variety of formats, search variables and view recent publications.

SWAN researchers have published over 300 manuscripts covering a wide range of topics related to menopause and women’s health.  Those interested in analyzing the public use datasets are strongly encouraged to access the current list of SWAN publications to ensure their research questions have not already been addressed by SWAN Investigators.

Data not available through the Public Datasets are under active investigation by SWAN Investigators and are being used to address aims of the current study grant (SWAN V).
