GEOG-6732 - Formal Population Geography

This course is an in-depth introduction to formal Demography, covering the most basic and some advanced demographic techniques currently used in population studies. Class topics include components of population change along with measurement issues in mortality, fertility, and migration; standardization/decomposition; single- and multiple-decrement life tables and multi-state models; stationary and stable populations and their applications and extensions; cohort-component population projections along with some extensions and forecasting techniques; and links between life table and event history models. Ultimately, this course will enable the student to apply some of the methods learned and extend the application of some of them to an econometric/multivariate setting.

Class materials are available on Desire2Learn during the semester when the class is being taught.
