The Discussion Papers Series publishes research papers written by the members associated with the Centre for Population, Aging and Health.
The aim is to disseminate information concerning progress of research in various fields related to population studies and to stimulate discussion on substantive content as well as on methodological approaches used in the papers. Thus, most papers are documents yet to be published by refereed journals. Comments from readers are welcome by the author(s). The content and views expressed in the Discussion Papers Series belong solely to the author(s) and do not represent the views of The University of Western Ontario or of the Centre for Population, Aging and Health.
