CEDA was formed over 20 years ago in response to the growing demand from government agencies, Congress, and academic researchers for timely, accessible, and practical information as well as basic research. As one of eleven centers established by the National Institute on Aging nationwide, CEDA forms part of the national infrastructure for developing the relatively new field of economics and demography of aging. CEDA is comprised of more than 40 faculty fellows including a group of outstanding demographers complemented by population researchers in related disciplines at Berkeley and partner institutions. CEDA research encompasses four signature themes: (1) Demographic and fiscal consequences of global aging, including the National Transfer Accounts project, (2) mortality and health, including the Human Mortality Database project, (3) biodemography of aging, and (4) behavioral economics.
