This study will explore the magnitude and significance of the connections between Latino/Hispanic origin (e.g., ethnic origin and birthplace), educational attainment, physiological factors (e.g., cardiometabolic correlates), and cognitive function (e.g., domain-specific and global cognitive function) using data from the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL) and the Study of Latinos Investigation of Neurocognitive Aging (SOL-INCA; an ancillary study to HCHS/SOL).
