Dr Elaine Douglas

Dr Elaine Douglas attended the Conference on Cross-Country Analysis of Retirement, Health and Well-being at the University of Southern California.  The conference brought together many of the Health & Retirement Study family of ageing studies that comprise the Gateway to Global Aging.  The paper addressed the ways in which people are asked about how long they expect to live across three ageing studies: HAGIS (Scotland), the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA, England) and The Irish Longitudinal Study of Ageing (TILDA, Ireland), and looked at cross-country explanations for the differential results.
