An holistic statistical approach for determining the relationships between social, economic and health markers using the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing

The global elderly population is expected to double by 2050, reaching nearly 2.1 billion. Initiatives to tackle this elderly population inflation are needed in order to sustain society’s well-being and people’s quality of life. We develop methodology aiming to understand the dynamics of the ageing process and the relationships between the factors that affect ageing progression (evidence from the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing).
