Neda Agahi was granted funding of 4.620.000 SEK from the Swedish Research Council for Health, Working Life and Welfare (Forte) for the project “Aging in flux: How changing behaviors and lifestyles in the new cohorts are reshaping old age” for a three-year period (2021-2023).

The overarching question of the project is whether today’s older adults age differently with regard to trajectories of behaviors and lifestyles compared to previous birth cohorts of older people? Focus will be on changes in social and leisure activities, physical activity and diet, and alcohol consumption. Gender and socioeconomic inequalities, as well as their interplay, are central throughout the project. To this aim, nationally representative longitudinal data (LNU and SWEOLD), covering a period of over 50 years, will be used. More information about the project
