Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Poverty
  • Psychology
  • Socioeconomic status

His primary areas of study are Demography, Socioeconomic status, Mortality rate, Gerontology and Cause of death. His study brings together the fields of Record linkage and Demography. His Socioeconomic status research also works with subjects such as

  • Social class that connect with fields like Welfare,
  • Poisson regression that connect with fields like Developing country.

The Mortality rate study which covers Developed country that intersects with Marital status, Unemployment and Prospective cohort study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Global health, Life expectancy, Development economics and Population health. His Cause of death research focuses on subjects like Total mortality, which are linked to Cause specific mortality and Mortality data.

His most cited work include:

  • Widening socioeconomic inequalities in mortality in six Western European countries (656 citations)
  • Educational inequalities in cause-specific mortality in middle-aged and older men and women in eight western European populations (436 citations)
  • Excess mortality of unemployed men and women during a period of rapidly increasing unemployment (322 citations)

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

Tapani Valkonen mainly focuses on Demography, Socioeconomic status, Gerontology, Social class and Mortality rate. His Demography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Developed country, Life expectancy and Cause of death. His work is dedicated to discovering how Socioeconomic status, Socioeconomics are connected with Socioeconomic inequalities and other disciplines.

Tapani Valkonen carries out multidisciplinary research, doing studies in Gerontology and Spouse. Tapani Valkonen interconnects Poverty and Head of Household in the investigation of issues within Social class. Many of his research projects under Mortality rate are closely connected to Psychological intervention with Psychological intervention, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Demography (72.00%)
  • Socioeconomic status (46.67%)
  • Gerontology (28.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2003-2012)?

  • Demography (72.00%)
  • Socioeconomic status (46.67%)
  • Gerontology (28.00%)

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

His primary areas of study are Demography, Socioeconomic status, Gerontology, Mortality rate and Social class. His work carried out in the field of Demography brings together such families of science as Life expectancy, Elderly people, Marital status and Cause of death. While the research belongs to areas of Cause of death, Tapani Valkonen spends his time largely on the problem of Total mortality, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Cause specific mortality and Mortality data.

His studies examine the connections between Socioeconomic status and genetics, as well as such issues in Poisson regression, with regards to Relative risk. As part of his studies on Gerontology, Tapani Valkonen often connects relevant areas like Population health. His work on Relative mortality as part of general Mortality rate study is frequently linked to Detailed data, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

Between 2003 and 2012, his most popular works were:

  • Educational inequalities in cause-specific mortality in middle-aged and older men and women in eight western European populations (436 citations)
  • Socioeconomic inequalities in mortality among elderly people in 11 European populations (265 citations)
  • Inequalities in lung cancer mortality by the educational level in 10 European populations. (176 citations)
