His study in Demography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Absolute risk reduction and Marital status. Pekka Martikainen combines subjects such as Cohort study, Covariate, Health equity, Sample and Life course approach with his study of Socioeconomic status.

His Cohort study study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Unemployment and Confidence interval. His studies deal with areas such as Intervention, Suicide prevention and Risk factor as well as Mental health. His work in Life expectancy tackles topics such as Longevity which are related to areas like Higher education.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Determinants of inequalities in life expectancy : an international comparative study of eight risk factors (26 citations)
  • Medically assisted reproduction and birth outcomes: a within-family analysis using Finnish population registers. (26 citations)
  • Medically assisted reproduction and birth outcomes: a within-family analysis using Finnish population registers. (26 citations)
