Demography (“Days”) Daze is a collaboration between the Carolina Population Center (CPC) and the Duke Population Research Institute (DuPRI).  This is the second annual afternoon workshop where we share ideas across our centers and highlight collaborative research.  Our use of Daze is meant to capture the “dazzle” and “splendor” of innovative ideas and new techniques/technologies (not the 1st offered Webster definition, “to stun or stupefy”!).  And if there is a lazy summer daze, then it is in early June, when our calendars are probably less crammed. So please join us on the afternoon and evening of June 13th.

This year’s program features Anatoli Yashin and Paul Voss, both recent winners of career awards given by the Population Association of America. The sessions will be at the Carolina Population Center and the reception/dinner will be held at the Mediterranean Deli at 410 W. Franklin Street.  See the Agenda for more information.

A History of Collaboration:

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University have rich histories in the population sciences.  The Carolina Population Center (CPC) was one of the first population research and training centers established in the early 1960s.  It has been continually funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development since 1973.  The Population Sciences at Duke began in the 1980s when the National Institute of Aging Funded what has evolved into the Center for Population Health and Aging (CPHA) now part of the Duke Population Research Institute (DuPRI).

Together, the two centers are responsible for some of the most innovative data collection projects in the population sciences including the Adolescent Health Survey (Add Health), the China Health and Nutrition Survey (CHNS), the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Study of Development, Study of the Tsunami Aftermath and Recovery (STAR), the Mexican Family Life Survey (MxFLS), the National Long Term Care Study (NLTCS) and National Study of Youth and Religion (NSYR).
