His Demographic economics research integrates issues from Per capita income, Socioeconomic status, Life satisfaction and Income distribution. His Microeconomics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Engel curve, Almost ideal demand system and Consumer behaviour.

The concepts of his Econometrics study are interwoven with issues in Statistics, Linear regression and Variables. His Consumption research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Survey data collection, Welfare and Agricultural economics. His Commodity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Supply and demand, Rational expectations, Speculation and Autocorrelation.

His study looks at the relationship between Consumption and topics such as Econometrics, which overlap with Survey data collection. His work carried out in the field of Poverty brings together such families of science as Purchasing power parity, Public economics, Politics and Price index.

His Demographic economics research includes themes of Per capita income, Per capita, Life expectancy, Earnings and Economic inequality. His Economic inequality study deals with Demography intersecting with Happiness.

His work in the fields of Mortality rate overlaps with other areas such as General pattern. His Happiness study also includes

  • Anger together with Younger adults and Gerontology,
  • Public economics most often made with reference to Spite. His study in Global inequality is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Preparedness, Per capita, Economic inequality and Demographic economics.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Rising morbidity and mortality in midlife among white non-Hispanic Americans in the 21st century. (1088 citations)
  • Subjective wellbeing, health, and ageing (839 citations)
  • The Great Escape: Health, Wealth, and the Origins of Inequality (479 citations)

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

  • Law
  • Statistics
  • China

Angus Deaton spends much of his time researching Demography, Poverty, Social psychology, Happiness and Health care. His research in the fields of Mortality rate overlaps with other disciplines such as Household income. His studies deal with areas such as Incentive, Survey methodology, China, Developing country and Politics as well as Poverty.

His work deals with themes such as Average treatment effect, Actuarial science and Treatment and control groups, which intersect with Social psychology. His Happiness study which covers Spite that intersects with Life-cycle hypothesis, Intertemporal choice, Plea and Public economics. His research investigates the connection between Affect and topics such as Falling that intersect with problems in Disadvantage.
