Description of the Workshop


Training will be a mix of lecture with plenty of opportunities for questions, including the chance to work together in small groups with hands-on assignments. Several guest speakers participate in the training. The workshop will run approximately from 9am to 3pm, June 5-9 (M-F), 2023. 


The workshop is designed for early career researchers from any discipline – demography, sociology, economics, public health, statistics, and others. Trainees are either advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, assistant professors or other early stage researchers, but more advanced researchers seeking to expand their expertise may also apply.

The workshop will assume some knowledge of R programming and that participants are familiar with introductory demographic methods. Pre-workshop materials and exercises are available to help everyone get “up to speed.” Those without experience programming in R and/or without demographic methods background should plan on spending considerable time on these pre-workshop exercises.


Accepted trainees will receive funding from our grant support.


The event will take place in-person on the UC Berkeley campus.
