Special Collection 22

Interdisciplinary Research on Healthy Aging

Published 17 January 2018

This Special Collection was edited by Frans Willekens, James R. Carey, and Qiang Li. The papers in this collection represent a small selection of papers presented at an international conference on healthy aging, held in October 2012 in Beijing and Hangzhou, China. The first part of the conference, in Beijing, focused on the biodemography of healthy aging and the discovery and quantification of the effects of biological, personal, and social factors on the health status at old age. The second part of the conference, in Hangzhou, focused on multistate event history analysis of life paths connecting risk factors and experiences early in life or at adult age and health status at advanced age. The papers in this collection emphasize the mechanisms that link the determinants of healthy aging to health outcomes at advanced ages.
