CAPS promotes, supports, and disseminates interdisciplinary and policy-relevant research centered in the demography and economics of aging

The Center for Aging and Policy Studies (CAPS) at Syracuse University is an initiative of the Syracuse University Aging Studies Institute. CAPS was founded in July 2009 with generous support from the National Institute on Aging (NIA). It is one of 14 centers funded through NIA’s Demography and Economics of Aging Centers program. CAPS promotes, supports, and disseminates interdisciplinary and policy-relevant research centered in the demography and economics of aging.

Research Themes

The Center has three priority research areas: 1) age-related changes in everday context, 2) demographic change, late-life well-being, and public policy, and 3) families, caregiving, and intergenerational relationships.
