IUSSP Expert Group Meeting on Population Data for the 21st century: Advances in data collection methodologies

UNFPA Headquarters New York City, 4-6 December 2019

The IUSSP and UNFPA, with support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, UNFPA and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), will hold an Expert Group meeting on Population Data for the 21st century: Advances in data collection methodologies at UNFPA headquarters in New York from 4 to 6 December 2019. This meeting will bring together key researchers, practitioners and institutions innovating in data collection methodologies, to present their work and, when possible, to critically confront alternative approaches and underlying hypotheses, validate innovations, refine estimators, and seek consensus on the lessons learned. In addition, the meeting seeks to inform the larger research and data practitioner communities about advances in this area and of recommended best practices.

A provisional program is available here.

The meeting will be live-streamed and a video recording will be accessible from the home page of the IUSSP website. More details on how to follow the streamed sessions will sent to members before the meeting and will be posted on the IUSSP home page.

Please note that those invited as observers are expected to cover their travel and accommodation to attend this meeting. No travel support will be provided. Places are limited and registrations are subject to validation by the organizing committee. The organizers will give preference to those who are in the New York City area.
