Workshop

About the workshop

Longitudinal studies provide rich data for life course epidemiology (e.g., understanding some age-related process or its causes and consequences), but this power is magnified by working across multiple studies. In particular, with multiple cohorts (representative of the same population) born at different points in time researchers can investigate how some age-related process or association has changed over time in response to shifts in the behavioural, nutritional, and political etc environments.

This workshop, chaired by Dr Will Johnson (Loughborough University) focused on the use of multiple longitudinal studies for age-period-cohort investigation.
