From February 2017, information about the work of the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, University of Glasgow is available and updated on the University of Glasgow website.

Longitudinal Effects of Context on Health

The context of our daily lives - such as area of residence, school or workplace – has been shown to be related to various health measures and outcomes. However, less is known about the long term influence that context has on subsequent health outcomes. Using the Aberdeen Children of the 1950s Study and the Oslo Mortality Study, we are examining these relationships and developing and adapting statistical methodology.
