Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Law
  • Disease

John Lynch mainly investigates Socioeconomic status, Gerontology, Demography, Epidemiology and Public health. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Disadvantaged, Environmental health, Psychosocial, Life course approach and Economic inequality. His Gerontology research integrates issues from Incidence, Developmental psychology, Early childhood, Life expectancy and Social medicine.

John Lynch has included themes like Odds ratio, Relative risk, Personal income and Infant mortality in his Demography study. His Epidemiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Developed country, El Niño, Cause of death, Myocardial infarction and Risk factor. John Lynch combines subjects such as Mental health and Life course epidemiology with his study of Public health.

His most cited work include:

  • Indicators of socioeconomic position (part 1) (1618 citations)
  • Life course epidemiology (1169 citations)
  • Income inequality and mortality: importance to health of individual income, psychosocial environment, or material conditions (1163 citations)

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

John Lynch spends much of his time researching Demography, Socioeconomic status, Gerontology, Public health and Epidemiology. His studies in Demography integrate themes in fields like Cohort study, Confidence interval, Child development, Pediatrics and Cohort. The study incorporates disciplines such as Psychological intervention and Early childhood in addition to Child development.

His study focuses on the intersection of Socioeconomic status and fields such as Economic inequality with connections in the field of Social inequality. His Gerontology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Body mass index, Odds ratio and Life course approach. His research ties Health care and Public health together.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Demography (39.61%)
  • Socioeconomic status (25.04%)
  • Gerontology (23.73%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Demography (39.61%)
  • Child development (17.02%)
  • Early childhood (14.24%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Demography, Child development, Early childhood, Psychological intervention and Confounding. His study in Demography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cohort study, Confidence interval, Census, Numeracy and Cohort. His study looks at the relationship between Cohort and topics such as Epidemiology, which overlap with Public health.

His work deals with themes such as Absolute risk reduction, Relative risk, Cognition, Program evaluation and Pediatrics, which intersect with Child development. His work carried out in the field of Psychological intervention brings together such families of science as Psychosocial, Observational study, Randomized controlled trial and Sustainable development. His study in Confounding is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Body mass index, Anthropometry, Caesarean section and Obstetrics.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The SWPER index for women's empowerment in Africa: development and validation of an index based on survey data. (88 citations)
  • The SWPER index for women's empowerment in Africa: development and validation of an index based on survey data. (88 citations)
  • The extended Infant Feeding, Activity and Nutrition Trial (InFANT Extend) Program : a cluster-randomized controlled trial of an early intervention to prevent childhood obesity (30 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Law
  • Disease

John Lynch focuses on Demography, Child development, Psychological intervention, Gerontology and Pediatrics. His research in Demography intersects with topics in Gestational age, Young adult, Rate ratio, Confidence interval and Census. John Lynch has included themes like Confounding, Relative risk, Social competence and Cohort in his Child development study.

His Psychological intervention research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Psychosocial, Observational study, Randomized controlled trial and Social psychology. His Gerontology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Survey data collection, Sustainable development, Women's empowerment, Empowerment and Trend analysis.
