An important point of departure are the longitudinal databases available and developed at CEDAR (including POPUM, POPLINK, the Linnaeus Database and SHARE), as well as information from databases developed at other units at Umeå University (such as Betula and the Västerbotten Intervention Programme, VIP).
Central themes for research at CEDAR are:
Cognitive and physical ageing.
Participation of the elderly.
Living conditions in majority and minority groups during different phases. of the demographic transition.
