Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course provides an introduction to the interdependent topics of mortality, health, and ageing, thereby focusing on different trends and patterns across time, space, and population subgroups. Students will learn about the micro-level drivers and macro-level consequences of the mortality transition and their link to global health and population ageing, considering the interaction of demographic, social, and economic processes. We will also discuss various measures for health and ageing and explore relevant data sources. Finally, students will critically reflect on strategies to overcome challenges in public health and demographic ageing in both low- and high-income countries.

METHODS: lectures, interactive sessions, in-class discussions, student presentations, small take-home assignments and readings

LEARNING OUTCOME: After completing this course, students will be familiar with the most important demographic concepts, trends, patterns, and heterogeneities related to mortality, health, and ageing. Moreover, they will be able to critically assess relevant measures and policies. They will also be acquainted with seminal literature and know how to critically read and interpret it.
