Pre-conference: Longitudinal studies on social security, work and health - defining measurements, statistical analyses and ethical issues
Wednesday 9 November, 9:00 – 17:00 CET
EUPHA Social security, work and health section
This pre-conference focuses on methods in longitudinal studies on social security, work and health - defining measurements, statistical analyses and ethical issues. As the field of Social security, work and health grows, the methods used are becoming increasingly advanced and sophisticated. This pre-conference will give participants an opportunity to listen to and discuss state-of-the-art presentations of current methodological developments of the field, as well as reflect over some current methodological issues in small-group discussions. The topics range from the detailed level of measurements and statistical techniques, to the broad and conceptual level of ethical and political considerations when researching social security, work and health.
The pre-conference will combine talks on current methodological developments followed by whole-group discussions on the topics of the presentations, with round-table discussions between participants on current issues.
