Population Studies

Health & Population Studies at Columbia is a multidisciplinary community of scholars unified by a commitment to research that addresses the health and well-being of vulnerable populations in the context of local and global inequalities, and that informs policies affecting these populations.  This community is centered in the Columbia Population Research Center (CPRC), which integrates population research across Arts & Sciences, the School of Social Work, and the Mailman School of Public Health. Several members of the Columbia sociology department are faculty members of the CPRC and conduct research in the areas of children, youth, and family, migration, and urbanism (CPRC also has a fourth signature research area, namely HIV/AIDS and reproductive health).  Advanced graduate students with relevant research interests can be appointed as a CPRC fellow, which provides access to high performance computing, restricted data computing, Geographic Information Systems and spatial analysis services, and other resources such as travel support to the PAA annual meeting.
