Rachel Rosenfeld and Katherine Curtis Write Chapter in New Book on Population and the Environment

Doctoral student Rachel Rosenfeld and Katherine Curtis, CDE’s associate director for training, co-wrote a chapter, “Spatial Data and Analytical Approaches,” in the International Handbook of Population and Environment. The book features 24 chapters by distinguished authors with sections on theoretical perspectives, data and methods, migration and environment, health and mortality, and the influence of demographic dynamics on the environment. Rosenfeld and Curtis’ chapter provides an overview of how spatial data and analyses are used in research at the population-environment nexus and identifies how spatial data and analytic strategies might advance our theoretical knowledge of today’s most significant environmental issues.
