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.

Seminar “Spatial Inequality in cause-specific mortality in Europe: Empirical evidence and future research directions”

The scientific seminar “Modern Demography” was held on 30 May 2019. The speaker was Pavel Grigoriev, PhD, Research Scientist at the Laboratory of Demographic Data, Max Planck Institute for demographic research.

Seminar "Health inequalities in Europe: why so persistent?"

The 15th scientific seminar “Modern Demography” was held on 24 April 2019. The speaker was Johan Mackenbach, MD, PhD, Professor of Public Health, Chair of the Department of Public Health at Erasmus MC, University Medical Center Rotterdam. His report was devoted to health inequalities in Europe, their scope, trends, spatial features and factors determining them. A separate question of the seminar - why the Western European welfare state could not eradicate differences in mortality depending on the socio-economic status of a person?
