Demography of Aging Center

Factors that Affect Aging

The Center for Health and Wellbeing is home to a Demography of Aging Center, funded by the National Institute of Aging.

Research Focus

The Demography of Aging Center, started in 2004, fosters new research on:

  • Interrelationships between socioeconomic status and health as people age
  • Determinants of decision-making and wellbeing among the elderly
  • Determinants and policy consequences of increased longevity and population aging across and within countries over time.

An area of special emphasis is research on how HIV/AIDS is affecting the health and living conditions of the elderly.

Leadership and Projects

The center is directed by Anne Case. The Center supports a wide range of pilot research pilot projects.
