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.
Health, Health Disparities, and Socio-Economic Status CESR researchers explore the links between health and wealth, as well as differences in health between people. Health disparities can affect how frequently a disease affects a group or causes death and how many people get sick. We seek to define how racial and ethnic minorities, geographic areas, genders, ages, and disabilities affect individual health and income.
