The Center for Demography of Health and Aging (CDHA) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison is one of twelve demography of aging centers funded by the National Institute on Aging (P30 AG017266). Through the integration of research, training, and teaching, CDHA aims to increase the understanding of behavioral processes related to health and aging.
The interdisciplinary research program at CDHA is designed to create links between social demography, biomedical, and epidemiological research on health and aging. Research focuses on five major themes: aging and the life course; biodemography; determinants of disparities of aging trajectories; health economics and health services research; and impacts of place on aging processes.
CDHA enjoys a close relationship with the Center for Demography and Ecology, and affiliates benefit from the centers’ shared resources, such as funding opportunities and access to a secure data enclave.
