Date & time

11am–12pm 8 March 2016


Room 13, Level B, Building 22, University of Canberra.


Professor Laurie Brown, University of Canberra

Professor Laurie Brown is one of Australasia's leading health analysts and modellers. In this seminar she is presenting work undertaken by NATSEM through its participation in the DCRC-EDP initiative in estimating future numbers of people with dementia.

By reviewing different methodological approaches from basic demographic projections to cohort and dynamic microsimulation modelling, the work identifies a range of challenges involved in projection estimation, especially in trying to model the joint impact of multiple midlife risk and protective factors for late life dementia.
