Carolina Population Center
At the Carolina Population Center (CPC) we believe that understanding how and why populations change over time is key to advancing the well-being of all people. Our faculty, staff, and students conduct research on population, health, aging, and the environment, and share data and findings that push the field forward and train the next generation of population scholars.
For more than five decades, cutting edge methodological and empirical approaches have defined our work, helping us better measure, understand, and predict population change and its impact. We study populations and the processes that affect them from many different angles, whether the focus is on adolescents in the US, mothers in the Philippines, or the elderly in Africa. And we provide access to our data, collection protocols, and methods, which have influenced scholarship and practice across the globe. Learn more about our work in each of CPC's six focus areas.
