Contemporary population research increasingly involves sophisticated analyses of large, complex datasets. In addition to heading ongoing, non-human primate longitudinal surveys, CPHA Scholars also lead many well-known, long-running human longitudinal surveys such as the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study.
By linking censuses, national government administrative records and other data sources—such as U.S. Social Security and Medicare—with nationally representative longitudinal surveys, CPHA Scholars generate large-scale datasets to study the long term effects of early life conditions and education on health and productivity in the U.S. These diverse collections substantially contribute to research and scholarship in the areas of Biodemography, Life Course Studies and Intergenerational Studies, and have already yielded a wealth of scientific publications by scholars around the world.
The Table below illustrates major data collections and innovations at CPHA. For additional information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
