Professor Michael Murphy

Introduction | Publications

My recent publications include work on morality crises in Russia; models for mortality forecasting in elderly populations; kinship differentials; intergenerational transfers between parents and children; and modelling the long-term effects of assortative mating, feedback mechanisms, and kinship correlations on population size and structure.

I also direct a large-scale multi-disciplinary ESRC-funded project, Modelling Needs and Resources of Older People to 2030 with colleagues from a variety of disciplines, which is investigating issues such as how trends in mortality and morbidity will evolve; if the extra years of life will be lived in good health; the consequences of changes in family circumstances on the availability of informal sources of care and for older people's social participation; and how these domains interact with each other and differ between socio-economic groups.
