The Applied Demography newsletter is jointly supported by the PAA Business Demography Group and the State and Local Demography Group. Applied Demography contains articles of interest to demographers working in applied settings, technical articles on demographic analysis, and announcements of related news and upcoming events.

2021 Applied Demography Conference

The first ever PAA Applied Demography Conference was held virtually in February 2021. This conference was to provide an opportunity for applied demographers to share their work, receive feedback from respected peers, and serve as a gathering point for the applied demography community to connect with each other.
