This study was conceived in 1988 as the Sydney Older Veterans Health and Services Project to investigate the health of community dwelling veterans of World War II and commenced in 1991, when non-veteran members of the community were included as well. Under the direction of CERA's former Director, Professor Tony Broe, SOPS has surveyed the same group of older people for over 10 years, regularly testing their mental and physical function. When participants were originally recruited they were aged 75 years and older. These remarkable people now have an average age of 89, with 15 participants over 100 years old.
