---- Acknowledgments ----

The prior work of Dr. John McArdle is greatly appreciated. The development of the revised adaptive number series test for use in Indonesia and other low income countries originated from long discussions between Strauss, John McArdle, Robert Willis and Rebeca Wong, with the support of the Division of Behavioral and Social Research, National Institute on Aging. Richard Woodcock was also heavily consulted. Support from small grants from the USC/UCLA Center on Biodemography and Population Health (from P30-AG017256) and from the University of Michigan (from P01-AG026571) helped to fund the pretest field work in Indonesia and Mexico for the adaptive number series test used in this paper. Grant support from the National Institute on Aging, R01-AG026676, and the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, R01-HD050764 for IFLS and from the National Institute on Aging, R01-AG037031, the National Natural Science Foundation of China, 71450001,71273237, 7130002, 71603013, and the China Medical Board, 16-249, for CHARLS is greatly appreciated.
