Organisation Profile

At the Helsinki Institute for Demography and Population Health we study health and mortality, population ageing, social disadvantage, and family dynamics. We use extensive register data as well as genetically informed clinical and survey data, and their combinations. Our main interest lies in accumulation of social and health disadvantage across the life course, within families, and across generations. The Head of the Institute is Pekka Martikainen.
