THE ASSOCIATION BETWEEN DISABILITY ACQUISITION, SOCIO-ECONOMIC DISADVANTAGE AND HEALTH: A LONGITUDINAL ANALYSIS OF TRAJECTORIES OF DISABILITY
Grant number: 1093740 | Funding period: 2015 - 2021
People with disabilities are more likely to live in disadvantaged circumstances and experience poorer health and wellbeing than people without disabilities. The aim of my research is to contribute a nuanced, causally-robust longitudinal analysis of the relationships between disability, socio-economic disadvantage and health. I will model disability trajectories to characterise the diversity of disability experiences over time, and the determinants and consequences of different trajectories.
