What's Your Aging IQ?

So, how did you do?

Did you already know everything? Or, did some of the answers surprise you? How can you know that those surprising answers were actually true? All this information comes from the National Instituteon Aging (NIA), part of the Federal Government's National Institutes of Health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The NIA conducts and supports research on aging and educates the public about our findings. More information about many of the subjects discussed in this aging IQ test is available from the Institute in a series of free fact sheets called AgePages.
