His work deals with themes such as Body mass index, Psychosocial, Job strain, Marital status and Cohort, which intersect with Gerontology. Ossi Rahkonen combines subjects such as Absolute risk reduction, Poisson regression, Disease, Health equity and Pediatrics with his study of Demography. His Response rate study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Psychiatry, Activities of daily living and Logistic regression.

His most cited work include:

  • 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)
  • Socioeconomic Position and Self-Rated Health: The Contribution of Childhood Socioeconomic Circumstances, Adult Socioeconomic Status, and Material Resources (164 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Demography, Gerontology, Public health, Psychiatry and Socioeconomic status. The Demography study combines topics in areas such as Cohort study, Marital status, Confidence interval, Sickness absence and Socioeconomic differences. His Gerontology study combines topics in areas such as Body mass index, Psychosocial, Hazard ratio, Response rate and Cohort.

Ossi Rahkonen combines subjects such as Logistic regression and Environmental health with his study of Response rate. His studies in Public health integrate themes in fields like Young adult and Epidemiology. His work in the fields of Psychiatry, such as Mental health and Insomnia, overlaps with other areas such as Injury prevention.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Demography (30.73%)
  • Gerontology (30.26%)
  • Public health (20.09%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Demography (30.73%)
  • Environmental health (14.66%)
  • Sickness absence (12.06%)

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

Ossi Rahkonen mostly deals with Demography, Environmental health, Sickness absence, Public health and Response rate. His work deals with themes such as Body mass index, Logistic regression, Incidence, Confidence interval and Cohort, which intersect with Demography. His Environmental health study incorporates themes from Leisure time and Tobacco use.

Ossi Rahkonen interconnects Rate ratio and Psychiatry in the investigation of issues within Sickness absence. His Biostatistics study, which is part of a larger body of work in Public health, is frequently linked to Market share, bridging the gap between disciplines. Mental health is closely attributed to Gerontology in his research.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Association of Healthy Lifestyle With Years Lived Without Major Chronic Diseases (28 citations)
  • Long-term exposure to heavy physical work, disability pension due to musculoskeletal disorders and all-cause mortality: 20-year follow-up—introducing Helsinki Health Study job exposure matrix (15 citations)

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

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Social science

Demography, Cohort, Public health, Body mass index and Proportional hazards model are his primary areas of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Continuous variable, Logistic regression, Life course approach and Confidence interval in addition to Demography. His study in Public health is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Telephone interview, Socioeconomic status and Representativeness heuristic.

His studies deal with areas such as Obesity and Job strain as well as Body mass index. His Obesity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Body weight, Gerontology and Cohort study.
