Carol Jagger

Carol Jagger is the leading UK researcher on healthy life expectancy. Recent publications include a major paper on trends in older people’s care needs and future implications. She has also developed the Population Ageing and Care Simulation (PACSim) model to estimate how dependency levels will change in the future.

“My expertise and current research is in projecting what the health (in terms of disease, multi-morbidity, and dependency) of the future older population will look like. My latest research from our PACSim model shows how the younger cohorts ageing into the older population over the coming 20 years, will differ from the past and current young-old in terms of ill-health (especially multi-morbidity) and dependency and the extent to which dementia will contribute to dependency.   There are messages for prevention in mid and later life but also more appropriate healthcare provision. The research findings will speak to healthcare planners and providers but it also has wider repercussions for individuals and families.”
