Sociality, Hierarchy, Health: Comparative Biodemography: Papers from a Workshop This collection of papers examines cross-species comparisons of social environments and their effects on health, longevity, and life histories. It revisits both the theoretical underpinnings of biodemography and the empirical findings that have emerged over the past two decades.
This new report explores the causes, consequences and implications of demographic, economic and social changes that are vital to the development of sound social policy for an aging population. The report evaluates the recent contributions of social demography, social epidemiology, and sociology to the study of aging and identifies promising new research directions in these subfields.
