The Secondary Data in Aging interest group is an interdisciplinary learning collaborative. Focusing on research using secondary data, this group discusses theoretical and methodological issues relevant for a person’s life course and aging. Themes also include empirical evaluation research of policy and programs. Participants share their research to receive feedback and identify opportunities for collaborations. Experts on specific statistical approaches and/or data construction are invited.
This month Sojung Park, PhD will present a set of life course empirical studies. Conceptually, her research draws from multi-disciplinery perspective (psychological, sociological, and public health) in conceptualization of life course development and changes. Using longitudinal secondary national datasets, her studies will present empirical examinations of life course pathway to disparity in later year health and well-being.
We meet every month during the academic year. No RSVP required. All roles, departments, and organizational affiliations are invited to attend.
