Organization Description

University of Chicago has an active aging research program.

Established as an Exploratory Center in 1994 with funds from the National Institute on Aging (NIA), our aging research program has evolved into the Aging Action Research Network (AARN). AARN aims to function as a substantive hub for aging research within and outside of NORC, acting as a knowledge broker for the development of design-based research, dissemination to stakeholders, innovation in survey research methods and evaluation, and management of grant programs. For more than 20 years, NORC has united scholarly expertise in aging research and cutting edge survey research and evaluation methodology to increase understanding of what it means to grow older in the United States.
