Longitudinal Effects of Nutritional and Sociodemographic Determinants on Healthy Aging in Luxembourg - Lessons to Learn from the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging

Project Details


Healthy aging is a major concern worldwide, and understanding the factors that affect it is crucial for maintaining the quality of life of older adults. Nutrition and sociodemographic factors are two important determinants of healthy aging, and their effects can vary over time. This project aims to investigate the longitudinal effects of these determinants on healthy aging, drawing lessons from the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA). The CLSA is a large-scale research project that has been tracking the health of over 50,000 Canadians since 2010 and examines the impact of nutritional and sociodemographic factors, among other factors, on health outcomes, including physical, mental, and cognitive health. It also investigates the role of lifestyle factors, such as physical activity and social engagement, in promoting healthy aging.
The study focused on sociodemographic factors, such as income, education, and social support, and nutritional factors, e.g., dietary patterns related to suboptimal protein intake and low-nutrient but high-calorie density diets were also important predictors of healthy aging.
The study will focus on analysing a subset of CLSA data that includes information about the nutritional and sociodemographic factors of the participants. By comparing findings from the Luxembourg studies with those from the CLSA, this project will identify best practices and interventions that can be implemented to promote healthy aging in Luxembourg and other similar contexts.
