NorLAG Den norske studien av livsløp, aldring og generasjon

About NorLAG

The Norwegian study on life course, ageing and generation (NorLAG) has three main objectives: (1) to explore the conditions for vital ageing and quality of life in old age, (2) to study these conditions in different areas and types of communities, and under different care regimes, (3) to provide knowledge to support a sustainable welfare policy in an ageing society.

NorLAG aims to provide knowledge about variation and life-course change by studying behaviour and transitions in four key domains:

(1) Work and Retirement
(2) Family and generations
(3) Mental health and quality of life
(4) Health and care

Gender, cohort, and local communities are cross-cutting issues through all domains.

LOGG – the Norwegian Study on life course, generation and gender – comprises the first wave of the Generations and Gender Survey (GGS-Norway) and the second wave of NorLAG. LOGG aims to study processes and dynamics regarding relationship formation, childbearing, “leaving home”, and retirement behaviour. LOGG is carried out by Statistics Norway in cooperation with Norwegian Social Research (NOVA).
