This year’s theme – Data Visualization – centered on critical engagement with design principles and data visualization, as well as practical utilization and application of R to represent data through a variety of graphics and animations.
From May 23-24, 2022, Scott Cunningham hosted CDE/CDHA’s Summer DemSem session and presented on several different topics relevant to social science researchers, particularly graduate students. This two-day event was held in-person on campus.
The Center for Demography and Ecology and the Center for Demography of Health and Aging were pleased to host a spring research retreat that took place on Friday, May 5th, 2023, from 2-5pm in the AT&T Lounge at the Pyle Center, 702 Langdon Street, Madison, Wisconsin. This workshop brought together Center faculty and student affiliates from across UW to foster collaborations for innovative research, provide networking opportunities and refreshments, and encourage work that advances the Centers’ Research Themes (CDE & CDHA).
The summer 2022 program was hosted by the University of Wisconsin–Madison. From May 31-June 14, 18 undergraduate students lived and studied at UW for 2 weeks. Participants received an introduction to population research through classroom instruction and hands-on applications that addressed contemporary social issues, including race and income inequalities, health disparities, immigration, and family change.
Since its founding in 1962, the Center for Demography in Ecology has served as hub for population research at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. To celebrate sixty years of innovation and collaboration, CDE hosted an anniversary celebration and conference on October 7-8, 2022 at the Pyle Center.
