At CESR, our scientists, colleagues and staff pursue compelling, data-driven research in the social
sciences and economics that further understanding, policy making and quality of life. In broad terms,
our significant areas of interest include:
Retirement has a causal positive effect on general health and no significant effect on depression, according to a CESR study of older workers and retirees in European countries.
Aging As the proportion of older people increases worldwide, governments, policy makers and individuals will face major challenges in healthcare, retirement and labor market supply. With fewer workers to fund retiree needs, population shifts will burden low-income countries. CESR research addresses these critical issues to guide decision making in economic growth, employment, retirement, health care and social services.
