This research project:

  • Focuses on whether the proportion of older individuals in a place with good health is associated with better labour market-related social and economic outcomes in those places.  
  • Will identify what concepts and metrics of health are appropriate in trying to measure the health of an older population in a given place.
  • Is led by UCL’s Epidemiology & Public Health department, in conjunction with University of Leeds Geography 
  • March 2020 to December 2022.
