The anxiety sensitivity (AS) construct has received considerable attention in anxiety research and is considered to be a cognitive vulnerability factor for the study of anxiety related disorders. The Anxiety Sensitivity Index (ASI) is the most widely used instrument for the study of AS. The present Data Note provides an overview of all the 16-item ASI questionnaires filled and returned by the twins in the TwinsUK registry. This work does not provide any multidimensional or factor structure analysis of the responses provided. TwinsUK registry encompasses a wide range of clinical and self-reported data that can be used as confounding factors in the study of cognitive and mental health.
