    schema:reviewBody ""In Baby Boomer Health Dynamics, Andrew Wister argues that the health of a population is affected by experiences of cohorts as they form unique health and illness trajectories connected to their size, composition, earlier life experiences, and exposure to historical events. A cohort analysis of major national Canadian surveys collected between 1978-9 and 2000-1 constitutes the core of the primary research. In addition to a discussion of general population trends, the author provides comparisons of the baby boom generation with the previous generation, and looks at the influence of such factors as socio-economic status, regional differences, and foreign-born status on lifestyle behaviours." "Providing a wealth of data and insightful analysis of issues and trends, Baby Boomer Health Dynamics is essential reading for students and practitioners in the fields of sociology, demography, gerontology, epidemiology, and health sciences."--Jacket." ;
