Course Information


The course is structured around analysing the demographic components of change (fertility, mortality and migration) and finishes with a discussion of cohort component projection methodologies. Recent advances and debates in demography will be considered.

The course includes a set of practicals which involve downloading real demographic data and undertaking analysis using Excel. An understanding of the use of formulas in Excel is expected. 

The course covers:

  • The Demographic Equation
  • Demographic Data
  • Fertility: Period and Cohort Approaches
  • Mortality: Measuring Mortality and the Life Table
  • Migration: measurement and associated issues
  • Population projections
  • Recent advances and debates in demography

By the end of the course participants will have:

  • understanding of the way demographic pattern and process influence our understanding of changing populations and of related social issues
  • knowledge and understanding of the key theory and principles underlying demographic analysis
  • ability to calculate and interpret a range of measures for demographic analysis
  • the ability to access and use appropriate data sources for demographic analysis
  • an ability to use demographic data sources and demographic method intelligently in a range of real world applications

The only pre-requisite for the workshop is an understanding of the use of formulas in Excel, however an interest in demographic processes and some knowledge of rudimentary statistics will also be helpful.
