Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Statistics
  • Disease

Demography, Pediatrics, Socioeconomic status, Cohort study and Developing country are his primary areas of study. His Demography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Gerontology, Population based, Confidence interval, Health equity and Seroprevalence. His study in the field of Breastfeeding and Breast feeding also crosses realms of Child health.

His work carried out in the field of Socioeconomic status brings together such families of science as Global health and Poisson regression. His Cohort study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Birth weight, Young adult, Depression, Anthropometry and Cohort. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cross-sectional study, Poliomyelitis, Socioeconomics and Environmental health in addition to Developing country.

His most cited work include:

  • Alternatives for logistic regression in cross-sectional studies: an empirical comparison of models that directly estimate the prevalence ratio (2543 citations)
  • Breastfeeding in the 21st century: epidemiology, mechanisms, and lifelong effect (2248 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in blood pressure from 1975 to 2015: a pooled analysis of 1479 population-based measurement studies with 19·1 million participants (824 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Demography, Cohort study, Socioeconomic status, Pediatrics and Environmental health. His Demography study also includes

  • Birth cohort together with Logistic regression,
  • Public health and related Family planning,
  • Breastfeeding that intertwine with fields like Breast feeding. Aluísio J. D. Barros combines subjects such as Pregnancy, Birth weight, Low birth weight, Epidemiology and Cohort with his study of Cohort study.

His Socioeconomic status study combines topics in areas such as Health equity, Poisson regression and Gerontology. His Pediatrics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Gestation and Confounding. He works mostly in the field of Environmental health, limiting it down to concerns involving Developing country and, occasionally, Socioeconomics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Demography (37.98%)
  • Cohort study (23.32%)
  • Socioeconomic status (20.19%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Demography (37.98%)
  • Public health (13.22%)
  • Environmental health (16.11%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Demography, Public health, Environmental health, Birth cohort and Socioeconomic status. His Demography study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Family planning, Cohort study and Cohort. His Cohort study research includes elements of Offspring, Pregnancy, Logistic regression and Confidence interval.

The Environmental health study combines topics in areas such as National health, Epidemiology and Health policy. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Longitudinal study, Psychiatry, Odds, Population based and Family income. His research on Socioeconomic status often connects related areas such as Cross-sectional study.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • SARS-CoV-2 antibody prevalence in Brazil: results from two successive nationwide serological household surveys. (80 citations)
  • Population-based surveys of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 in Southern Brazil. (68 citations)
  • Gender norms and health: insights from global survey data (65 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Statistics
  • Disease

Aluísio J. D. Barros mainly investigates Demography, Socioeconomic status, Public health, Environmental health and Psychological intervention. His research in Demography intersects with topics in Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys, Marital status and Seroprevalence. Aluísio J. D. Barros has included themes like Clinical trial, Posterior teeth, Dentistry, Cohort study and Clinical significance in his Socioeconomic status study.

His Environmental health research incorporates elements of Logistic regression, Cumulative incidence, Disease, Asthma and National health. His Psychological intervention study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Private sector, Disadvantaged, Caesarean section and Child mortality. His Child mortality study incorporates themes from Poisson regression and Biostatistics.
