Purpose

The objective of this seminar is to provide an introduction to population studies, both in terms of substance and method. Demography is a core social science: without populations, there are no societies and the three primary demographic processes of mortality, fertility and migration strongly shape the structure of societies and the social processes associated with it. The seminar discusses some classical and contemporary topics in social demography and population studies, and introduces the basic tools for analyzing these. Topics include: trends and social disparities in mortality, fertility and migration, the demographic transition, family change, life tables and associated measures, summary measures.
 
At the end of the seminar researchers will have developed a critical understanding of the main theories in demography on fertility, mortality, and migration. They will know how to interpret, compute, and appropriately use the most common demographic measures, such as total fertility rates and life expectancy.
