Statistical epidemiology in ageing research

Lead Research Organisation: MRC Biostatistics Unit

Abstract

Understanding how health and ill health change with age is important for public health. The shape of the population is changing with more surviving into old age. Information on changes that occur with time is generally measured using longitudinal population based studies. Although these studies provide direct information on changes and the age at which they occur, they also suffer from potential problems due to dropout of respondents as a result of refusal, migration and death. If this is not taken into account reported results can seriously underestimate disease and disability in the population. This programme aims to investigate the health changes caused by ageing that take into account the difficulties of the studies that were used to derive them. In this way, proper public health statements can be made and used to develop policy for the future. The programme undertakes to improve both the methods and also provide applied papers that will focus on the implications of the changes.

Technical Summary

A programme of work that covers both the methodology and application of measures for changes associated with ageing. Modelling the ageing process to correctly investigate individual differences, missing data and the correct formulation of the time process requires both good data and improved methodology. The programme covers the improvement in methodology and the application within applied scientific papers.|1. Healthy life expectancy and multi-state modelling|A programme of research that involves improving measures of healthy life expectancy modelled using longitudinal data, including the modelling process, measuring model fit, relaxing some of the assumptions and the investigation of missing data, and then undertaking analyses of health life in a variety of settings.|2. Cognitive modelling and modelling through the life course|A programme of research involved in the investigation of cognition through time, over age and near death. The modelling involves a detailed investigation of the patterns of change, the relationship with covariates, the impact of missing data and the relationship with mortality. In addition the programme collaborates with other MRC units on a cross collaboration project of ageing through the lifecourse. This is investigating the methods of combining longitudinal investigations to enable understanding the entire age range.|3. MRC Collaborative Group for the Cognitive Function and Ageing Study I and II (CFAS) |Overall strategic control (planning, co-ordination, and development) of statistical analysis within this large, UK, multi-centre, epidemiological, cohort study of ageing, cognitive decline and dementia. A new cohort CFAS II is currently underway, our role includes sampling, data managament and statistical oversight. Sub-studies of blood and brain tissue elucidate the role of genetic factors within ageing, and of the neuropathological processes which characterise dementia in the community. Other sub-studies investigate the costs of continuing care and the burden on carers.|4. Applied research|A varied programme of investigations of application of the above methodology including mild cognitive impairment (the state between normal cognitive ageing and dementia), the relationship between ageing in life and pathology seen at death, autism in the UK and Netherlands, the investigation of disability its causes, incidence and recovery, and various aspects of healthy life expectancy (such as disability free life expectancy, cognitive impairment free life expectancy) and its causes and investigations of cognitive health. This all links to a focus on public health research and policy implications of the ageing population.||Key Words: healthy life expectancy, cognitive function, ageing and psychiatry

Impact The Royal Statistical Society aims to improve statistical literacy across the nation, from those in parliament to the children in our schools. But an important plank in this strategy is to also improve the understanding of those working in the media, who are often the brokers between the statisticians and the wider public. The RSS Science Journalism Programme was launched 2010. The aim of the project is to improve the scientific and statistical understanding of journalism professionals, and journalism students, through workshops given by science and statistics professionals themselves. The project has received funding from the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) to deliver the workshops at journalism schools and news organisations across the UK. The programme was originally established as a recommendation of the Science and the Media Expert Group's report Science and the Media: Securing the Future. The RSS agreed to host the programme on the principle that an understanding of statistics and science is fundamental to the needs of journalism training that were identified in the report. The programme has delivered training to journalists of all levels at multiple events and institutions nationally.

Results and Impact Unit held open day as part of MRC Festival of Medical Research.

The aim of the open day was to welcome secondary school students and members of the general public to come to the unit, find out about the research the unit does, and to take part in activities that illustrate BSU research, with the overall theme being 'Fun with statistics'. An open day of this format was a first for the unit and overall it was a very successful event. There were 40 attendees over a 4 hour event. All attendees pre-booked and were split into 4 groups for a 1 hour session comprising of an introduction, participation in hands-on activities, and a brief careers talk. The small groups and length of session allowed for quality engagement between the scientists and the audience.

Feedback from the attendees was very positive, and the wider MRC Festival activities that took place in Cambridge demonstrated the benefits in delivering these types of events.

Results and Impact STEM Statistics Workshop was developed, supported by a Public Engagement Seed Fund (awarded by the University of Cambridge). The workshop was designed to engage Year 10 and Year 11 students in statistical thinking and present interesting problems in biostatistics.

The workshop consisted for three interactive activities, with a significant focus on working in groups to investigate and talk about the activities. This prompted many questions and discussions as the students worked through the activities.

Bassingbourn Village College reported students were very engaged with the activities, and it was very helpful to see a different context for the statistical ideas taught as part of the curriculum.

Results and Impact Each year BSU participate in Cambridge Science Festival - members of the general public explore and discuss issues of scientific interest and concern, through a series of different events. The event also aims to raise aspirations by encouraging young people to consider a career in science, technology, engineering or mathematics.

BSU take part over two full days - 'Science Saturday' and the 'Cambridge Biomedical Campus' day. The unit presents a stand with 4 - 5 interactive activities that each communicate a basic statistical method or idea, representing one of the four research themes in the unit. Each year a new activity is developed and delivered requiring scientific input from staff across the unit.

He also learnt to use new software (GNU R statistical software) to analyse the outcomes.
Student reported the findings to the wider Cam-CAN research group.
The project was a great success, furthering understanding of the spot-the-word test across all ages and the issues of incomplete data. More importantly, feeding this research back into the wider Cam-CAN research community helps to ensure the test is used appropriately in other research questions. As a result of the student's work, a group of Cam-CAN researchers are writing a research paper to publish the findings.
Student developed interest and knoweldge of statistical research and learnt about what it might like to become a research scientist in a biostatistics research unit.
