Dr. Yasuhiko Saito has been collaborating with faculty and researchers at the UP Population Institute on aging research starting, first, with his facilitation of funding and providing technical assistance for the conduct of the 2007 Philippines Study on Aging (PSOA). This has led to the publication of several papers on aging in the Philippines including (1) Active life expectancy and functional health transition among Filipino older people, (2) Work, retirement, and the gender divide in the Philippines, and (3) Gender and economic well-being among older Filipinos, among others.

Dr. Saito is currently a co-project investigator with Dr. Grace T. Cruz on the 2018 Longitudinal Study on Aging and Health in the Phil (LSAHP) Project. LSAHP is designed to be the first nationally representative longitudinal study on older people ages 60 years and over in the Philippines. LSAHP is funded by the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA).
