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.
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.
