Committee on Applied Demography

The CAD is represented by applied demographers–both from academic disciplines and professional backgrounds, employed primarily by government agencies, businesses, and non-profit organizations–that represent the interests of applied demographers to the Population Association of America Board of Directors. This site captures historical and present day information about the CAD. Details of past meeting activities, from our annual business meeting to the breakfast meeting, are listed. You’ll also find links to previous editions of the Applied Demography Newsletter, which is a popular product of the CAD. If you want up-to-date information on applied demography happenings you can join the List Server.  And, if you’re interested in more information on applied demography, there are reference links to applied demography courses and websites.
