This funding is for Years 21-25 of the Michigan Center for the Demography of Aging (MiCDA), jointly run by the Population Studies Center and the Survey Research Center. MiCDA serves as a critical link across other campus units doing aging-related research, including the Economics Department, the Sociology Department, the School of Public Health, and the School of Medicine. MiCDA directly supports innovative inter-disciplinary research via pilot projects; serves as the focal point for connecting external networks of scholars around emerging topics; and supports both dissemination of findings based on and use of data collected from Michigan's large NIA-funded studies. MiCDA's secure Data Enclave increases researchers' access to restricted data that are highly valuable for the study of aging.

Over the next five years, MiCDA will undertake activities to further advance research around four signature themes emerging from faculty interests: (1) chronic disease and disability; (2) life course determinants of late-life health and well-being; (3) aging, genetics, and social science; and (4) economics of savings and retirement. A fifth signature strength that crosscuts these research areas is Michigan's expertise in data collection and measurement.

Funding Period: 07/01/2014 to 06/30/2019
