Health and mortality, population ageing, social disadvantage, family dynamics
At the Population Research Unit (PRU) we study health and mortality, population ageing, social disadvantage, and family dynamics. We use extensive register data as well as genetically informed clinical and survey data, and their combinations. Our main interest lies in accumulation of social and health disadvantage across the life course, within families, and across generations.
