Elderly living arrangements in rural South Africa

In a cooperative project with the RAND Corporation, Director Michael Rendall and  Faculty Associate Paul Torrens are investigating the present whereabouts and social, economic, and health outcomes for New Orleans residents displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Associate Director Sangeetha Madhavan is examining the probability of a transition in living arrangements for elderly women in rural South Africa due to HIV / AIDS events in the family or community.

The Center’s research focuses on four key areas: Gender, Family, and Social Change; Health in Social Context; Social and Economic Inequality; and People and Place. Learn more about the types of projects being conducted in these thematic areas by clicking on one of the research profiles above.
