History of Applied Demography

Interested in the origins of the Applied Demography Group? Read this 1994 paper by Paul Voss, Applied Population Laboratory, University of Wisconsin-Madison: The Origins, Growth and Future of Applied Demography in the United States.


The Applied Demography newsletter is currently on hiatus as the Committee on Applied Demography maps out what is best for the group. In the meantime, share news and ideas in the Applied Demography Community (members only).
