Course Description

This capstone course brings together the skills, knowledge, and tools acquired in the courses which have preceded it, and it requires their application to 'real-world' demographic applications. The best, affordable, current demographic software will be used in lectures and workshops to create life tables and population projections, including migration, for both small- and large-scale analysis. Examples of demographic analysis will be drawn from applications commonly used by school boards to project future school populations and adjust school boundaries, by energy suppliers, and by urban planning departments to project energy needs and the demand for building permits, etc. In addition to the use of statistical software such as SPSS, Haley demographic software will be introduced if it is available.


This is a project-based, independent study course.
