Patrick Lazarevic studied sociology at the University of Duisburg-Essen, where he received his M.A. in 2014. During his academic career, he was always concerned with studies in the field of research methodology as well as with the influence of methodological artifacts and different approaches on the results of empirical research. In his phd at the TU Dortmund University, he applied these interests to the field of epidemiology and especially to the examination of self-rated health as an indicator of generic health.

At the Vienna Institute of Demography, he is working in the ERC consolidator grant project ‘Levels and Trends of Health Expectancy: Understanding its Measurement and Estimation Sensitivity’ (LETHE) where he continues his research on health indicators, health perceptions, and their implications for (generic) health measurement and survey methodology.
