The Swedish Adoption/Twin Study of Aging (SATSA) was a population-based study consisting of reared apart and reared together twin pairs (Finkel and Pedersen, 2004). In-person testing (IPT) in SATSA was initiated in 1986 and nine complete waves of in-person testing were conducted through 2014 (IPT1 to IPT10, except for IPT four where only telephone interviews were performed), during which the information of a maximum of nine BAs, including telomere length, four DNAmAges (Horvath’s, Hannum’s, PhenoAge, and GrimAge), physiological age, and three functional ages (cognitive function, FAI, and FI) were available. In total, 859 individuals participated in at least one IPT wave in SATSA, and 846 individuals who had at least one BAs assessed once since IPT1 to IPT 10 (except for IPT4) and the information of vital status through linkage between the Swedish Twin Registry (STR) and the Swedish Population Register were included in the present study. The number of individuals and measurements by IPT and BAs were detailed in Table 1 and Supplementary file 1A.
