Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology

How many we are, how fast is our society growing, and why are we moving are just a few questions fundamental to social science knowledge and particularly important for growing our understanding of population health. CSDE scholars conduct scientific investigations that advance statistical demography, population projections, spatial demography, demographic measurement, big data generation and analyses, and demographic models for population research.
