  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

Giuseppe Costa mainly investigates Demography, Socioeconomic status, Epidemiology, Public health and Gerontology. His Demography research incorporates themes from Cancer, Longitudinal study, Cohort, Census and Unemployment. His Socioeconomic status study combines topics in areas such as Mortality rate, Cohort study, Cause of death and Environmental health.

Giuseppe Costa has researched Epidemiology in several fields, including Poisson regression and Pediatrics. Public health combines with fields such as Social class and Social inequality in his investigation.

His most cited work include:

  • Widening socioeconomic inequalities in mortality in six Western European countries (656 citations)
  • Postprandial Blood Glucose Is a Stronger Predictor of Cardiovascular Events Than Fasting Blood Glucose in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Particularly in Women: Lessons from the San Luigi Gonzaga Diabetes Study (438 citations)
  • Socioeconomic status and the 25 × 25 risk factors as determinants of premature mortality: a multicohort study and meta-analysis of 1·7 million men and women (418 citations)

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

His studies in Demography integrate themes in fields like Longitudinal study, Poisson regression, Gerontology and Cohort. Giuseppe Costa interconnects Relative risk, Social determinants of health and Socioeconomics in the investigation of issues within Socioeconomic status.

His research in Public health intersects with topics in Psychological intervention and Health care. The study incorporates disciplines such as Injury prevention and Occupational safety and health in addition to Environmental health. His Epidemiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Incidence, Cause of death and Family medicine.

  • Public health (17.80%)
  • Epidemiology (17.05%)

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

Giuseppe Costa mostly deals with Demography, Public health, Epidemiology, Socioeconomic status and Health care. His Demography research focuses on Mortality rate in particular. His study in Public health is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cross-sectional study and Identification.

He combines subjects such as Excess mortality, Emergency department, Retrospective cohort study and Emergency medicine with his study of Epidemiology. His studies deal with areas such as Psychological intervention, Sedentary lifestyle, Years of potential life lost and Environmental health as well as Socioeconomic status. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Gerontology, Isolation, Medical emergency, Disease and Childbirth.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Socioeconomic status, non-communicable disease risk factors, and walking speed in older adults: multi-cohort population based study (49 citations)
  • Long term effect of air pollution on incident hospital admissions: Results from the Italian Longitudinal Study within LIFE MED HISS project. (24 citations)
  • Temporal dynamics in total excess mortality and COVID-19 deaths in Italian cities. (23 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cancer

His primary scientific interests are in Socioeconomic status, Demography, Cohort study, Public health and Psychological intervention. His work on Socioeconomic position as part of general Socioeconomic status research is frequently linked to Western europe, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His research investigates the connection with Demography and areas like Years of potential life lost which intersect with concerns in Standardized mortality ratio, Attributable risk and Health equity.

His Cohort study research incorporates elements of Marital status and Cohort. His Public health study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Epidemiology, Demographic economics and Migraine. His Epidemiology research integrates issues from Young adult and Excess mortality.
