Faculty affiliated with the Population Center are involved in several demographic research projects. Here are some of them:
Demographic and Social Change in Eastern Europe
This program is a network initiative to study population dynamics and macro-level social change in the broadly defined Eastern Europe and the post-socialist countries of the former Soviet Union. Please check the program website for the list of research projects and network activities.
West Texas demographic characteristics
This project involves the creation of a database with demogrpahic information on West Texas region (migration, fertility, mortality, population structure)
US Skilled Immigrants: Education and the Life Course
This study intends to research the effects of education level on the labor force participation and income of immigrants. The question behind this project is a policy related one: are indeed the skilled immigrants likely to do better than the low skilled immigrants on the US job market? Do they get higher incomes? Are they less exposed to spells of unemployment? Or is rather that the US market more in need of unskilled immigrants, who would do the jobs Americans no longer want to do?
