Christian Doppler Laboratory for Aging, Health and the Labor Market

The CD Laboratory is an internationally-oriented research center on the economic consequences of the aging of society. The focus of research includes empirical analyses of the Austrian healthcare system and questions concerning the effects of demographic change on labor market, health and social policy as well as firm personnel policies. Scientists of the CD Laboratory therefore cooperate with innovative companies.

The empirical studies use comprehensive individual-level data of the Austrian healthcare- and labor market system. The data covers the last 35 years, thereby allowing detailed analysis of the effects of policy measures.

The CD Laboratory is intended to create the basis for independent and evidence-based policy advice and thus may contribute to improve the public debate on the welfare state.
