  • PAA Business Demography Group and the State and Local Demography Group

    The Applied Demography Newsletter welcomes submissions of materials for publication in the Fall 2018 edition. Submissions may include book releases, recruitment with deadlines after September 1, 2018, or upcoming conferences. We are interested in two new types of submissions.
    Visualization Note: a chart, map, or visualization of data relevant to applied demographers with a 200 word explanation.
    Policy Impact Note: we are interested in items up to 750 words in which you discuss the policy implications of your research. You may include links to other materials (i.e. YouTube, SocArXiv, etc.). 
    Given the emergence of the #DemographersLaughToo hashtag, we will consider funny anecdotes or jokes that would make demographers laugh. Please send your materials to Alexis R. Santos by August 6, 2018
