Co-hosted by CDE and the Center for Demography of Health and Aging, the weekly Demography Training Seminar augments affiliates’ professional skills, including those related to research communication, data management, analysis, and visualization, among many others. The series is largely targeted at the Center’s doctoral students and affiliated postdoctoral fellows, but certain sessions (e.g., new statistical methods, new computing tools) are also targeted to and attended by faculty. The series is designed to be flexible, so that training on new ideas and tools can be brought to the demography community quickly.
Led by Max Bebris in 2023-2024, the seminar meets on Wednesdays from 2:00 to 3:15 p.m. (8417 Sewell Social Sciences Building) and is open to all.
