The purpose of this study was to identify socio-economic inequalities in regular dental attendance throughout the life-course. The analyses relied on data from SHARE (waves 1 to 3 of the Survey of Health, Ageing, and Retirement in Europe), which includes retrospective information on life-course dental attendance of 26,525 persons currently aged 50 years or greater from 13 European countries (Austria, Poland, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, Greece, the Czech Republic, France, Denmark, Switzerland, Germany, and Sweden). Inequalities in dental attendance were assessed by means of Concentration Indices. Socio-economic disparities in regular dental attendance were identified as early as childhood. Moreover, higher educational attainment resulted in increased probabilities of regular dental attendance throughout subsequent life-years in all nations. In most countries, inequality levels remained relatively inelastic throughout the life-course. These findings suggest that a considerable proportion of inequalities in dental care use is already established at childhood and persists throughout the life-course.

The development of adult-onset diseases is influenced by perinatal exposure to altered environmental conditions. One such exposure, bisphenol A (BPA), has been associated with obesity and diabetes, and consequently labeled an obesogen. Using an isogenic murine model, we examined the effects of perinatal exposure through maternal diet to 50 ng (n=20), 50 μg (n=21), or 50 mg (n=18) BPA/kg diet, as well as controls (n=20) on offspring energy expenditure, spontaneous activity, and body composition at 3, 6, and 9 mo of age, and hormone levels at 9 and 10 mo of age. Overall, exposed females and males exhibited increased energy expenditure (P<0.001 and 0.001, respectively) throughout the life course. In females, horizontal and vertical activity increased (P=0.07 and 0.06, respectively) throughout the life course. Generally, body composition measures were not different throughout the life course in exposed females or males (all P>0.44), although body fat and weight decreased in exposed females at particular ages (all P<0.08). Milligram-exposed females had improved glucose, insulin, adiponectin, and leptin profiles (all P<0.10). Thus, life-course analysis illustrates that BPA is associated with hyperactive and lean phenotypes. Variability across studies may be attributable to differential exposure duration and timing...

Measuring socioeconomic position (SEP) in population chronic disease and risk factor surveillance systems is essential for monitoring changes in socioeconomic inequities in health over time. A life course approach in epidemiology considers the long-term effects of physical and social exposures during gestation, childhood, adolescence, and later adult life on health. Previous studies provide evidence that socioeconomic factors at different stages of the life course influence current health status. Measures of SEP during early life to supplement existing indicators of current SEP are required to more adequately explain the contribution of socioeconomic factors to health status and monitor health inequities. The aim of this thesis was to examine how a life course perspective could enhance the monitoring of SEP in chronic disease and risk factor surveillance systems. The thesis reviewed indicators of early life SEP used in previous research, determined indicators of early life SEP that may be useful in South Australian surveillance systems, and examined the association of SEP over the life course and self-rated health in adulthood across different population groups to demonstrate that inclusion of indicators of early life SEP in surveillance systems could allow health inequities to be monitored among socially mobile and stable groups. A variety of indicators...

The average age of Australian women at first childbirth in 2006 was 28.2 years, while the proportion of first births among women aged ≥ 35 years increased from 8% in 1997 to 14% in 2006. From a public health perspective, this shift has a raft of health consequences for women and children, including increased risks of miscarriage, gestational diabetes, and birth defects in the child. Furthermore, the use of assisted reproductive technologies associated with older childbearing carries risks in pregnancy, and adverse outcomes in offspring, in addition to very significant financial and emotional costs. Thus, it is imperative to understand barriers to childbearing at ‘optimal’ ages. Since evidence also suggests women now have fewer children than they would like, it is particularly important to investigate underlying structural determinants of older motherhood and foreshortened reproductive careers. Precarious employment conditions, related to trends in international labour markets, may play an important role in older age of first-time motherhood (as suggested in contemporary fertility theories). However there is a paucity of Australian research about this issue. A post-positivist approach was used to design a theory incorporating multiple disciplinary perspectives. The theory sought to explain the influence of macro-economic factors on individual lives...

PURPOSE: The research reported in this chapter focuses on understanding the experiences of women who had decided to return to cycling in adulthood. It was anticipated these experiences could assist other women contemplating taking up cycling as well as cycling lobbyists, policy makers and planners. METHODOLOGY: The research targeted women returning to cycling in the city of Adelaide, South Australia. It was conducted using qualitative research methods including in-depth interviews, helmet-mounted video cameras and diary entries. Forty-nine women participated in the study ranging in age from early 20s to mid-70s. FINDINGS: Respondents learned to cycle between the ages of 5 and 12 and most stopped in the early years of secondary school. Almost half the respondents had returned to cycling several times through the life course while another significant group had cycled occasionally up to the time of the interview. Women returned to cycling through a combination of circumstances but women in their early 20s emphasised the importance of social relationships while women in their late 30s (and older) stressed concerns about health and fitness. Becoming mothers or grandmothers was given as a reason for both taking up and giving up cycling. Although there was no pattern in the specific trigger that shifted women from ‘thinking about cycling to getting on a bike’...

This study aimed to assess the prevalence of use and need for dental prostheses (UNDP) by individuals at age 24 and their life-course determinants. A representative sample (n = 720) of all 5914 births occurring in Pelotas in 1982 were prospectively investigated, and the UNDP were assessed in 2006. Exploratory variables included demographic and socio-economic, oral health, and dental service utilization patterns during the life-course. The prevalence of UNDP was 2.1% and 29.7%, respectively. Multivariable Poisson regression analysis showed that low socio-economic status through the life-course [Prevalence Ratio (PR) = 1.56 (95% CI: 1.08-2.26)], lower maternal schooling in childhood [PR 2.79 (1.34-5.79)], no oral hygiene instruction by a dentist at age 15 [PR 1.64 (1.11-2.41)], and caries presence at age 15 (high DMFT tertile) [PR 2.90 (1.98-4.24)] were associated with prosthetic treatment needs. These results support the hypothesis that life-course socio-economic, behavioral, and clinical determinants are associated with the need for dental prostheses.; M.B. Correa, M.A. Peres, K.G.

Background: Oral cancer is a malignant disease contributing to one third of the total cancer burden in India. There is a worldwide social disparity in oral cancer incidence and survival. Life course epidemiology has shown that early-life socioeconomic conditions (SEC) could influence adult health through various pathways. Thus, the socioeconomic disparities in the occurrence of oral cancer underscore the importance of understanding the ‘life course processes’ operating between SEC at different stages in life and oral cancer. In addition to understanding socioeconomic disparities, practical solutions are required to reduce the burden of the disease. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment could reduce morbidity and mortality. Though visual screening helps in early diagnosis, it requires training and calibration of the screeners. Developing a simple screening model that can be utilized by untrained health care workers will be helpful in triaging asymptomatic adults with oral cancer. Therefore a study was designed with the following hypotheses. Research hypotheses 1. Accumulation of socioeconomic disadvantage over the life course is associated with oral cancer in the Indian population. 2. Early-life socioeconomic disadvantage has a lasting effect on the oral cancer outcome in adulthood in the Indian population. 3. An oral cancer screening model developed for the Indian population...

The life-course approach as a methodological framework for the empirical analysis of longitudinal individual-level data has fundamentally changed the agenda of demographic research. However, these methodological innovations have not been paralleled by a similarly successful theoretical integration in the life-course field. We aim to show that the life course is an indispensable framework for demographic research. Social forces, both structural and cultural, are articulated in the life-course dimension, and the individuals who act under their influence conceive of their actions in life-course terms. Thus, theories of fertility need to be set in these terms as well. In substantive terms, the life-course approach promises to integrate the extra-and intra-individual levels of relevant processes in a system of interdependent dynamics that unfolds over time; to conceptualize fertility and family formation as part of a multidimensional process of welfare production which requires complex decisions on the proper allocation of time and resources to the different life domains; to examine how cultural scripts and institutional programs shape and interact with intentions and preferences; and to highlight the impact of the past and anticipation of the future as a framework for the number...

Optimal cognitive development is defined in this article as the highest level of cognitive function reached in each cognitive domain given a person’s biological and genetic disposition, and the highest possible maintenance of cognitive function over the adult life course. Theoretical perspectives underpinning the development of a framework for understanding optimal cognitive development are described, including differential development, intra-individual dynamics, cascades, biological mechanisms, reserve capacity, and plasticity. The Cognitive Health and Environment Life Course Model (CHELM) is proposed as a means to provide a framework for understanding the socio-demographic, lifestyle, and health factors influencing cognitive development and decline. The CHELM may guide framing of policy and interventions to optimize cognitive development and minimize cognitive decline in late-life.; Anstey is funded by NHMRC Fellowship #1002560 and acknowledges support from the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research.

The objectives of this overview are to describe the past and potential contributions of birth cohorts to understanding chronic disease aetiology; advance a justification for the maintenance of birth cohorts from low- and middle-income countries (LMIC); provide an audit of birth cohorts from LMIC; and, finally, offer possible future directions for this sphere of research. While the contribution of birth cohorts from affluent societies to understanding disease aetiology has been considerable, we describe several reasons to anticipate why the results from such studies might not be directly applied to LMIC. More than any other developing country, Brazil has a tradition of establishing, maintaining and exploiting birth cohort studies. The clear need for a broader geographical representation may be precipitated by a greater collaboration worldwide in the sharing of ideas, fieldwork experience, and cross-country cohort data comparisons in order to carry out the best science in the most efficient manner. This requires the involvement of a central overseeing body - such as the World Health Organization - that has the respect of all countries and the capacity to develop strategic plans for `global' life-course epidemiology while addressing such issues as data-sharing. For rapid progress to be made...

Este artículo muestra los beneficios de la incorporación de la perspectiva cualitativa, y en particular del uso de los relatos de vida, en estudios basados en la perspectiva del curso de vida. Estos beneficios se ilustran mostrando un estudio sobre los efectos de las medidas de protección social en trayectorias profesionales basado en los fundamentos teóricos del enfoque de las capacidades de SEN (1987, 1992, 1993).La perspectiva del curso de vida es una buena opción metodológica para evaluar si los sistemas de protección social se adaptan a la situación actual de los mercados laborales pues numerosas trayectorias son no-lineales e inestables. Los estudios que adoptan esta perspectiva usan diseños de investigación en que los datos estadísticos secundarios ocupan un papel central, mientras que los datos cualitativos apenas tienen relevancia o directamente no se emplean. Este artículo muestra cómo estos estudios pueden ser mejorados mediante el uso de entrevistas semiestructuradas y un análisis cualitativo formal que permitan identificar puntos de inflexión, acontecimientos críticos, transiciones y etapas en los que las medidas y recursos de la protección social juegan un papel importante en modificar o canalizar las trayectorias personales y profesionales. Prestar atención a la persona y a su agencia – no sólo en un momento determinado de la trayectoria sino también en una perspectiva más amplia que incorpore episodios pasados y proyecciones hacia el futuro – resulta esencial para considerar cómo las personas utilizan los recursos que tienen a su disposición y para evaluar correctamente los efectos de las medidas de protección.; This article highlights the benefits of incorporating the qualitative perspective...

In recent decades, what matters for individual quality of life (QoL) has increasingly been the focus of empirical social science research. However, individuals are rarely asked directly what is important for their quality of life as part of large-scale surveys. The present analysis studies perceptions of what matters for QoL in a largescale longitudinal dataset ? the British Household Panel Survey ? which includes an open-ended question on QoL in three waves spanning ten years. We find that concepts of QoL change over the life course and differ between men and women.We hypothesize that changes in perceptions of QoL are related to important life events, such as the birth of a first child and retirement. These life events constitute ?turning points? after which individuals often shift their priorities of what matters for their QoL.We further explore whether such shifts in priorities are stable or disappear more than five years after the life event.

This dissertation contributes to the literature on intergenerational transfers by examining the dynamics of financial assistance provided by midlife parents to their adult children across the life course. This dissertation also examines whether the cumulative advantage hypothesis stretches across generational lines during co-occurring life course experiences so that financial transfers convey additional advantages to adult children. I use panel data from four waves of the Health and Retirement Study (1992, 1994, 1996 and 1998) to provide a broad picture of the process of financial assistance to younger adults within extended families. I constructed within-family trajectories of assistance to demonstrate that financial transfers are more common than previously estimated. Over 60% of all midlife-parent households gave $500 or more at least once and many parents gave multiple transfers and/or gave transfers to several adult children during a seven-year period. In an examination of kinship structures that differentiates between paternal children and maternal children within blended families, I use nonlinear logistic regression models to show that the decreased likelihood that fathers provided financial assistance to children from a previous marriage accounted solely for the reduction in transfers that all stepchildren received compared to biological children. Multilevel regression models demonstrate that transfer amounts are also influenced by kinship structures and parental resources. Additional analyses show adult child life course transitions related to schooling and coresidence were influential for parents' transfer behaviors while other life course transitions related to work...

As an aggregate, American households have shown rising debt levels over the past few decades, yet we do not understand how debt varies within households over time and what factors influence this variation in a meaningful way. To date, household debt appears predominantly as a component of measures of net worth, obscuring heterogeneity in the meaning of debt within a household. Moreover, most studies focusing specifically on indebtedness rely on cross-sectional data. In addition, no cohesive theoretical model exists to account for changing patterns of debt. This dissertation seeks to fill these gaps. Utilizing a variety of methodological approaches and drawing on longitudinal data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979, it adds sociological explanation to a social process that has been previously ignored and under-theorized.

First, drawing from literature in economics and sociology, I propose a dynamic, life course model of indebtedness that specifies three mechanisms driving differentiation in household indebtedness: institutional context (period), social heterogeneity, and patterned disadvantage, or structural risk. Second, I use multilevel logistic regressions to explore the association between the hypothesized mechanisms and the likelihood of holding non-collateralized debt. While experiencing negative life course risks increases the likelihood of holding debt...

European Master in Social Work with Families and Children; The aim of this qualitative study was to unveil the reality in the transition process of youth from family- oriented care to adulthood using life course approach. The comparative study was carried out in the SOS children villages in both Lagos, Nigeria, and Bicesse, Portugal, where data for the study were gathered through audio-recorded and phone calls interviews. Organisational documents and data collected were analysed using content analysis to identify the emerging themes, similarities and differences in the nexus of transition process from care to adulthood. Three dimensions emerged from the 12 participants’ answers to the interview questions, these include the past life in shaping transition, the present life in shaping the future, and the projected pathways of future based on the possibility of the past life and the present life. Two types of childhood typologies were identified. The study findings have implication for family-oriented care organisations. The need for international collaboration for national exchange of research, and networking among family-oriented care organisations will go a long way to improve the transition process of youth towards holistic development and an international successful outcome. Furthermore...

Neste artigo apresento um projeto empírico que estou atualmente conduzindo no Brasil. O foco do projeto é a questão de como as desigualdades sociais podem ser analisadas através de entrevistas qualitativas centradas no tema da vida cotidiana e nas orientações biográficas. O artigo resume brevemente alguns elementos fundamentais do Life Course Reserach antes de introduzir os alvos e a metodologia da pesquisa. Partindo, por um lado, de abordagens baseadas no Life Course Research e, de outro lado, de reflexões teóricas particularmente de Max Weber, Charles Taylor, Reinhard Kreckel, Pierre Bourdieu e Jessé Souza, o projeto empírico visa analisar diferenciadamente valores, conduções de vida cotidiana e orientações biográficas de brasileiros em diversos contextos sociais, para relacioná-los com a desigualdade social existente. A análise das inter-relações entre desigualdade social e valores, padrões de configuração da condução de vida e da biografia, específicos de grupos sociais no Brasil, cria a base para uma comparação das condições constitutivas de desigualdade social na Alemanha e no Brasil. Uma comparação deste tipo promete a possibilidade de elaborar categorias centrais para uma teoria da desigualdade social que...

Individual health is not only individual responsibility, but also depends on the social contexts that condition the individual across the life course. However, while it is of high public health relevance to identify these contextual influences, they still remain poorly understood, and the research performed so far has suffered from severe limitations. This paper presents a research agenda for social epidemiology that underlines a number of novel concepts, ideas, and unanswered questions deserving future investigation. The paper presents a conceptual framework intended to organize the investigation of geographical, socioeconomic, and cultural disparities in health. This framework identifies five main areas of research: (1) identifying the relevant contexts that influence individual health by measuring general contextual effects, (2) measuring contextual characteristics, the specific effects of these characteristics on individual health and their underlying cross-level mechanisms, (3) investigating general and specific contextual effects from a longitudinal, a life-course perspective and across generations, (4) developing quasi-experimental methods (e.g., family-based designs) for the analysis of causal effects in contextual analyses...

Objective. Research on early life socioeconomic status (SES), education and mortality is less established in developing countries. This analysis aims to determine how SES and education are patterned across the life course and associated with adult mortality in Mexico. Materials and methods. Data comes from 2001-2012 Mexican Health & Aging Study (Mexican adults age 50+, n= 11 222). Cox proportional hazard models predict mortality using baseline covariates. Results. In unadjusted analyses, similar mortality was seen across levels of early life SES. Lower early life SES was associated with better survival after accounting for education in the younger cohort. Lower education was only associated with mortality in the younger cohort. Conclusions. Early life SES was associated with education but the relationship between education and mortality differed across cohorts in Mexico. Selective survival and differential returns to education may explain differences.
