Demographic and Population-Based Research at UC Berkeley
The Population Sciences at Berkeley website provides an overview of leading population research at Berkeley, and an integrated home for the websites of the Berkeley Population Center and the Center on the Economics and Demography of Aging (CEDA). These two complementary centers provide support and infrastructure with which to foster innovative, meaningful and transformative population research. UC Berkeley is renowned for its leadership in research on the causes and consequences of population change. The core components of demography – fertility, mortality and migration – as well as the subfields are covered by the faculty and researchers affiliated with our Centers. Accordingly, this research is conducted across a broad set of university departments and disciplines, particularly the social, biological, health and data sciences.
Related to these two primary centers are our ‘sister’ units which operate independently yet are collaborators on areas of shared interest and allow us to leverage our mutual strengths. These are the Department of Demography, the Bixby Center on Population, Health and Sustainability, and the Berkeley Interdisciplinary Migration Initiative.
We welcome you to explore the website to learn about the research conducted at Berkeley, the scholars among our affiliated members, and the resources available to anyone on campus engaging in population research.
