The Michigan Center on the Demography of Aging (MiCDA) is based at PSC. Key areas of research in aging include: health, work, and retirement; trends in disability; race, socioeconomic status and health; AIDS and the elderly; and international comparative studies. Michigan is home to key national surveys on aging, including the Health and Retirement Study and the Panel Study of Income Dynamics. It also hosts the National Archive of Computerized Data on Aging. MiCDA supports local pilot projects, workshops, research networks, and a statistical data enclave, and serves as coordinating center for the 14-center NIA demography program.
