  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Psychiatry

His main research concerns Gerontology, Cohort study, Demography, Risk factor and Job strain. His Gerontology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Body mass index, Confidence interval, Public health, Occupational safety and health and Socioeconomic status. The study incorporates disciplines such as Epidemiology, Myocardial infarction, Hazard ratio, Prospective cohort study and Depression in addition to Cohort study.

The various areas that Jussi Vahtera examines in his Demography study include Odds ratio, Occupational stress, Sick leave and Absenteeism. His research on Risk factor also deals with topics like

  • Relative risk that intertwine with fields like Absolute risk reduction,
  • Publication bias which intersects with area such as Attributable risk. His Job strain research includes themes of Actuarial science, Odds, Job satisfaction, Clinical psychology and Job control.

His most cited work include:

  • Work stress and risk of cardiovascular mortality: prospective cohort study of industrial employees (715 citations)
  • Work stress in the etiology of coronary heart disease - a meta-analysis (656 citations)
  • Job strain as a risk factor for coronary heart disease: a collaborative meta-analysis of individual participant data. (608 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Cohort study, Gerontology, Demography, Prospective cohort study and Psychiatry. His Cohort study research incorporates elements of Hazard ratio, Epidemiology, Cohort and Risk factor. His Gerontology study also includes fields such as

  • Job strain and related Job control,
  • Occupational safety and health that connect with fields like Self-rated health.

His Demography research also works with subjects such as

  • Confidence interval that connect with fields like Odds ratio,
  • Socioeconomic status which intersects with area such as Environmental health. His study in Prospective cohort study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Physical therapy, Disease and Pediatrics. His Psychiatry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Social support and Clinical psychology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Cohort study (58.26%)
  • Gerontology (51.05%)
  • Demography (41.51%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Demography (41.51%)
  • Cohort study (58.26%)
  • Prospective cohort study (37.09%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Demography, Cohort study, Prospective cohort study, Gerontology and Cohort. His studies deal with areas such as Body mass index, Marital status, Confidence interval, Social support and Socioeconomic status as well as Demography. His studies in Cohort study integrate themes in fields like Obesity, Relative risk, Job strain, Hazard ratio and Risk factor.

The Risk factor study combines topics in areas such as Generalized estimating equation, Disease and Myocardial infarction. His work carried out in the field of Prospective cohort study brings together such families of science as Young adult, Mental health, Epidemiology and Depression. Jussi Vahtera interconnects Odds ratio, Physical therapy, Sick leave and Shift work in the investigation of issues within Cohort.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Overweight, obesity, and risk of cardiometabolic multimorbidity: pooled analysis of individual-level data for 120 813 adults from 16 cohort studies from the USA and Europe (149 citations)
  • Overweight, obesity, and risk of cardiometabolic multimorbidity: pooled analysis of individual-level data for 120 813 adults from 16 cohort studies from the USA and Europe (149 citations)
  • Job strain as a risk factor for clinical depression: systematic review and meta-analysis with additional individual participant data (137 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Psychiatry

Jussi Vahtera mainly focuses on Cohort study, Demography, Cohort, Gerontology and Job strain. His Cohort study research includes elements of Obesity, Hazard ratio, Confidence interval, Prospective cohort study and Socioeconomic status. Jussi Vahtera has researched Demography in several fields, including Life expectancy, Shift work, Physical activity level, Occupational safety and health and Depression.

His Cohort research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Odds ratio, Psychiatry, Sick leave and Sleep difficulties. His research in Gerontology intersects with topics in Body mass index, Proportional hazards model, Dementia and Weight loss. His Job strain study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Lower risk and Risk factor.
