Research Overview

PRC researchers are engaged in ground-breaking research advancing population science in four primary research areas: (1) Demography: Family Demography and Intergenerational Relationships, (2) Demography: Education, Work, and Inequality, (3) Reproductive Health, and (4) Population Health. These four broad areas are crosscutting and synergistic, reflecting the dynamic and interactive nature of the PRC research community and its many collaborations. Crosscutting themes include population inequalities and health disparities over the life course.

PRC faculty members have a remarkable record of extramural funding, publish frequently in top scientific outlets, and have a distinguished record of shaping scientific initiatives for population research. Their scientific contributions are path breaking and their awards are many.

The PRC also hosts a selection of projects within each research area and a research brief series designed for academic and press audiences.
