Department of Demography

Research Areas

Demographic training and research at Berkeley are both interdisciplinary and eclectic. Our greatest strengths are in formal mathematical demography, economic demography, and population theory. At the same time, we are always seeking to grow intellectually and to develop new approaches to demographic questions. For example, biodemography and the demography of political violence are new growth areas at Berkeley. What follows is a list of the primary research areas of our faculty and faculty associates.
