Welcome to CEDAR Research

CEDAR is a multidisciplinary centre for research on demographic changes and ageing.

At CEDAR, researchers from different faculties and disciplines study demographic changes from a young to an aging society in a variety of projects.

An important point of departure are the longitudinal databases available and developed at CEDAR (including POPUM, POPLINK, the Linnaeus Database and SHARE), as well as information from databases developed at other units at Umeå University (such as Betula and the Västerbotten Intervention Programme, VIP).

Central themes for research at CEDAR are:

  • Cognitive and physical ageing.
  • Participation of the elderly.
  • Living conditions in majority and minority groups during different phases. of the demographic transition.
  • Determinants of population trends.
