Dr. Wright will outline a series of studies using large linked administrative datasets to gain insight into a range of social factors at the individual, family and area levels that influence health. Special attention will be given to the influence of area of residence. He will describe the ways in which the detrimental effects of being widowed are moderated for those living in certain communities. Recent work into the social and geographical barriers to uptake of eye care among older people will be discussed. He will also describe the ways in which administrative data can be used to uncover social patterning of life events including divorce and childbearing.
