Center on Demography and Economics of Aging
The Center on the Demography and Economics of Aging (CoA), is one of fourteen NIA funded Centers across the U.S. which investigate aspects of health and health care, the societal impact of population aging, and the economic and social circumstances of the elderly.
The CoA aims to: 1. foster an exciting, dynamic intellectual environment for research in the demography and economics of aging; 2. provide research support services; 3. encourage the development of new research projects and research foci in the demography and economics of aging; and 4. support and facilitate the inclusion and analysis of biomeasures of health in new and ongoing projects at the University of Chicago and elsewhere. It provides support for research projects in four key areas: 1. social relationships, living arrangements, and family; 2. the social context of aging; 3. health care research; and 4. biobehavioral pathways. The Center has nourished an environment for research in the demography and economics of aging by providing research support services.
