Early Life Influences on Elderly Health in the Developing World

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigator:   Mary McEniry

This NIA-funded research project assesses the relation between early childhood conditions and adult morbidity and mortality among Latin American and Caribbean (LAC), Asian and African elderly populations, using as benchmarks data from relevant industrialized elderly populations in the US, UK and the Netherlands. Cross national data on over 144,000 older adults in 19 countries were compiled from major studies of aging as part of the project. In some instances historical data were also collected regarding early life conditions. Several hypotheses regarding early life conditions and older adult health were examined using comparable cross national and panel data on early childhood conditions (height, knee height, month of birth, SES during childhood, childhood health), adult SES (income, education), adult lifestyle (smoking, diet, drinking) and health outcomes (self-reported health, functional limitations, obesity, chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, and mortality). Several publications have resulted from the project.


Funding Period: 09/01/2011 to 02/28/2013
