Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The Mortality Research Working Group has considered how actuaries can draw on information and techniques from a number of different research areas. This report does not claim to be comprehensive, but reflects the opinions of the group members. There are some differences of opinion among the members of the group, reflecting the lack of consensus in the wider research community over a number of issues, so not every member of the group agrees with every opinion that is expressed.
