Demography and Ageing
The Demography and Ageing Unit comprises a group of demographers and social scientists who focus on the implications of ageing for individuals, families, the economy and population more broadly. Our research interests cover both macro (population ageing) and micro (individual ageing) perspectives on ageing, with a view to generating an evidence base to inform better policy and practice.
The Healthy Housing Unit generates high quality epidemiological research on the relationship between housing and health. The unit also models the effect of housing focussed interventions on health and trains and mentors a new generation of scholars to conduct rigorous research on Healthy Housing. The unit translates and disseminates the work to policy makers, thought leaders, media, and the public and reinforce the message that social determinants of health are primary drivers of population health.
