Research Opportunities with the Health and Retirement Study

May 10, 2023, 12:00 to 13:00 (Online event)

This session will discuss the potential of the Health and Retirement Study (HRS) to shed light on complex questions surrounding aging, work, retirement, health, family connections, and others. The HRS is a nationally representative longitudinal survey of over 37,000 individuals over the age of 50 in the US. The survey aims to capture shifting health and economic circumstances at the individual and population levels and has been employed to understand adverse experiences over the lifecourse and cognitive impairment, among others.

Are we adding more life to our years? Testing a compression of morbidity argument by examining activity-limiting pain in older adults using multistate life table methods

April 12, 2023, 12:00 to 13:00 (Online event)

The compression of morbidity argument contests that the burden of illness can be compressed into a shorter period of time before death, thereby improving the quality of life. In this Lunch&Learn session, Dr. Zachary Zimmer will discuss this hypothesis by examining activity-limiting pain in older adults through multistate life table methods (based on a paper being co-authored with CAnD3 Alum Feinuo Sun). Ultimately, this session will contend with the question of whether we are adding more life to our years—a nod to the 1974 Lalonde Report.

Creating a Public Resource: O*NET Job Characteristics Dataset for Use with the Health and Retirement Study and Other Surveys

March 8, 2023, 12:00 to 13:00 (Online event)

The O*NET Program is the United States' primary source of occupational information and this dataset is essential to understanding the rapidly changing nature of work and how it impacts the workforce and economy. In this Lunch&Learn session, Dr. Dawn C. Carr and Rebekah Carpenter will present on how the O*NET job characteristics dataset can be applied to health and retirement studies. More research connecting health and retirement are warranted to understand retirement timing and its impacts on system finances, well-being, cognitive functioning, and aging.

Sex- and gender-based analyses using existing data without a gender measure: Is it possible?

January 11, 2023, 12:00 to 13:00 (Online event)

While the analysis of administrative databases and surveys is vital to understanding population health and health inequalities, many of these datasets do not include gender measures. This session will explore the challenge of conducting sex- and gender-based analyses when self-reported gender measures are unavailable. Overcoming this challenge will be important for inclusive and accountable public health evidence-based decision-making.
