Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Law
  • Internal medicine
  • Public health

Her main research concerns Public health, Demography, Socioeconomic status, Epidemiology and Gerontology. Karien Stronks works mostly in the field of Public health, limiting it down to concerns involving Health care and, occasionally, Nursing. Her Demography study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Odds ratio, Body mass index, Logistic regression and Ethnic group.

Her Socioeconomic status research incorporates themes from Psychosocial, Social class, Former Smoker and Environmental health. Her work on Biostatistics as part of general Epidemiology research is frequently linked to Body size, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. Her Gerontology research includes themes of Overweight, Health promotion, Social environment, Global health and Mental health.

Her most cited work include:

  • Worldwide trends in body-mass index, underweight, overweight, and obesity from 1975 to 2016: a pooled analysis of 2416 population-based measurement studies in 128·9 million children, adolescents, and adults (2180 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in diabetes since 1980: a pooled analysis of 751 population-based studies with 4.4 million participants (1737 citations)
  • A century of trends in adult human height (1043 citations)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Ethnic group, Demography, Public health, Gerontology and Socioeconomic status. Her Ethnic group research includes elements of Cohort study, Health care and Pediatrics. She has researched Demography in several fields, including Odds ratio, Body mass index, Obesity and Epidemiology.

Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Psychological intervention and Environmental health. Her studies in Gerontology integrate themes in fields like Diabetes mellitus and Type 2 diabetes. Her work deals with themes such as Psychosocial and Social class, which intersect with Socioeconomic status.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Ethnic group (32.92%)
  • Demography (32.29%)
  • Public health (20.62%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Demography (32.29%)
  • Ethnic group (32.92%)
  • Helius (7.29%)

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

Karien Stronks mainly investigates Demography, Ethnic group, Helius, Obesity and Socioeconomic status. Her Demography research incorporates elements of Body mass index, Epidemiology, Odds ratio and Young adult. Her research integrates issues of Social support and Logistic regression in her study of Socioeconomic status.

Her work in Cohort study tackles topics such as Social epidemiology which are related to areas like Gerontology. Her study explores the link between Gerontology and topics such as Health knowledge that cross with problems in Environmental health. Her Poverty research integrates issues from Psychosocial and Public health.

Between 2017 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Contributions of mean and shape of blood pressure distribution to worldwide trends and variations in raised blood pressure: a pooled analysis of 1018 population-based measurement studies with 88.6 million participants (32 citations)
  • Variations in hypertension awareness, treatment, and control among Ghanaian migrants living in Amsterdam, Berlin, London, and nonmigrant Ghanaians living in rural and urban Ghana-the RODAM study (25 citations)
  • Contributions of mean and shape of blood pressure distribution to worldwide trends and variations in raised blood pressure: a pooled analysis of 1018 population-based measurement studies with 88.6 million participants NCD Risk Factor Collaboration (NCD-RisC) Members are listed at the end of the paper (22 citations)

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

  • Law
  • Internal medicine
  • Health care

Karien Stronks mainly focuses on Demography, Socioeconomic status, Environmental health, Gerontology and Cohort study. Her Demography study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Multimorbidity, Young adult, Ethnic group, Helius and Malnutrition. Her work carried out in the field of Socioeconomic status brings together such families of science as Social stratification, Higher education, Developmental psychology and Value.

Her Environmental health study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Health knowledge, Glycemic and Multicenter study. Karien Stronks combines subjects such as Psychosocial, Qualitative research, Focus group and MEDLINE with her study of Gerontology. In her work, Occupational safety and health and Autonomic dysregulation is strongly intertwined with Odds ratio, which is a subfield of Cohort study.
