Age Trajectories of and Cohort Differences in Health

Anna Oksuzyan, Angela Carollo, Domantas Jasilionis, Peng Li; in Collaboration with Jonas Wastesson (Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden), Kaare Christensen (Max-Planck Odense Center on the Biodemography of Aging / University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark), Susanne Kelfve (Linköping University, Sweden), Bettina Meinow (Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden), Kristina Johnell (Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden), Johan Fritzell (Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden)

The project investigates age trajectories and cohort differences in health and well-being across subpopulations with different sociodemographic and personality characteristics. It also contributes methodologically to research on specific health phenotypes, which may not be accurately measured through surveys due to high mortality or drop-out rates, especially at advanced ages.Detailed description
