Health Dynamics and Ageing Population (HEADYNAP)
Two research lines are developed in the HEADYNAP project. First, the project will assess the overall health status of the Luxembourgish population using a multidimensional health index. Second, we will use microsimulation technique for forecasting the individuals’ health status by updating the synthetic indicators of overall health of each individual for each time interval in order to provide a precise picture on how overall health will evolve over time. The outcomes of this project will contribute to the early design of public policies aimed at coping with the consequences of the ageing of society since it attempts to anticipate the impacts, channeled through the health status of the population, on the health care services, infrastructures and public finance.
