Center for Translational Research on Aging
National Institute of Aging Roybal Center
The Center for Health and Wellbeing is home to a National Institute of Aging Roybal Center, called the Center for Translational Research on Aging. The center has eight active pilot projects, two of which were carried over from a prior grant.
- Explore the unique components of experiential wellbeing through the measurement of positive and negative experiences in the context of the day reconstruction method (DRM), and to continue to explore the relationship between experiential wellbeing and evaluative measures such as the Cantril ladder and life satisfaction measures.
- Continue to explore the magnitude of survey mode effects, contextual effects, and other biases in existing measures of both experiential subjective wellbeing and evaluative measures and methods for mitigating them.
- Investigate the extent to which people’s perceptions of their subjective wellbeing adapt to changes in life circumstances (e.g. long-term unemployment, chronic disease, and widowhood) and how those relationships differ over the lifecycle.
- Explore the 2010 and new 2012 combined affect and time use data collected by the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics.
