What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Public health
  • Health care
  • Mental health

His primary areas of study are Gerontology, Socioeconomic status, Demography, Environmental health and Household income. His Gerontology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Psychosocial, Marital status and Job control. The study incorporates disciplines such as Life expectancy, Absolute risk reduction and Public health in addition to Socioeconomic status.

His Public health research focuses on subjects like Socioeconomics, which are linked to Poverty and Personal income. The concepts of his Demography study are interwoven with issues in Poisson regression, Affect and Occupational medicine. Mikko Laaksonen combines Environmental health and Cross-sectional study in his studies.

His most cited work include:

  • Pathways between socioeconomic determinants of health (351 citations)
  • Socioeconomic status and smoking (278 citations)
  • Health behaviours as explanations for educational level differences in cardiovascular and all-cause mortality: a follow-up of 60 000 men and women over 23 years. (228 citations)

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Gerontology, Demography, Socioeconomic status, Environmental health and Sickness absence. His Gerontology research includes elements of Psychosocial, Disability pension and Hazard ratio. Mikko Laaksonen combines subjects such as Social determinants of health and Job control with his study of Psychosocial.

His primary scientific interests are in Disability pension, Demography, Unemployment, Pension and Sickness absence. His Disability pension study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Register based, Psychiatry and Finance. In his study, Job strain is inextricably linked to Socioeconomic differences, which falls within the broad field of Demography.
