Evaluating Old-Age Disability and Health Trends

Supported by the National Institute on Aging, TRENDS is a network of researchers working to accelerate scientific understanding of old-age disability and health trends. We do this in three broad ways.

  • We conduct original research, looking for the causes and consequences of past, current, and future disability health trends.
  • We review findings from new studies, reconciling differences across studies and populations in the U.S. and abroad.
  • We create an environment that is collegial, facilitating open discussion of salient issues and cutting-edge research.

In particular, we are focused on fostering international and cross-institutional collaboration to enhance our understanding of trends in old-age disability and health, and providing a mechanism for interactive discussion.
