Center for Social and Demographic Research on Aging

at the University of Massachusetts Boston


Our mission is to conduct applied research that informs communities as their populations become older demographically, including research on topics that impact older adults seeking to age in their communities.

What We Do

Working together with municipalities throughout the Commonwealth, the Center conducts applied research aimed at addressing the wellbeing of New England's older residents.

    This is a state-by-state measure of income needed by older adults to maintain independence and meet their daily living costs.

  • Gerontology Institute »

    CSDRA was created with the goal to promote the demographic and applied research capacity within the Gerontology Institute.
