International Laboratory for Population and Health

About the Laboratory

International Laboratory for Population and Health develops new methods for modelling and decomposing differences and changes of major health indexes in human populations.  We conduct studies for unrevealing the Russian mortality enigma. We address components and factors of excess mortality at working ages and among the elderly. We are interested in health and quality of life in aging populations and in the impact of socioeconomic inequalities on people’s survival and health.
