the scientific study of populations, especially with reference to their size, distribution, and composition, changes therein, and the components of such changes (births, deaths, diseases, marriages, migrations, etc.)
The PhD program in demography trains independent researchers who are prepared to fill leading roles in social demography and population analysis at a variety of organizations and are well versed in the growth, structure, health, and well-being of human populations.
Congratulations to Courtney Boen (PSC/PARC Research Associate), on getting funding from the Network on Life Course Health Dynamics and Disparities in 21st Century America (NLCHDD) for a pilot project titled, “The Roles of State and Local Immigration Policy in Shaping Patterns of Health Inequality”. The project will expand understanding of the links between state and local policy, institutional practice, and population health by examining how state-level restrictive immigration policies and state- and county-level immigration enforcement activities shape patterns of health inequality from birth through late life.
