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.
Work Disability Disability support provides an important safety net relied on by economically vulnerable groups in many parts of the world. Our studies inform decisions about support for people whose ability to work is affected by disability. We examine outcomes of research on disability and policies that address disability to ensure they are effective and don’t jeopardize an already challenged population.
