Spatial and environmental demography is one of CDE’s five primary research areas.
Environmental context, events, and change are of increasing concern to human populations and represent a growing, yet still poorly understood, source of inequality in health and well-being over the life course. Recent research shows that the reality of place—reflecting the natural and built environments, social context, and specific location within a spatial structure—affects a host of outcomes for individuals, including health, socioeconomic attainment and longevity. Place impacts broader demographic processes (i.e., fertility, migration, and mortality), which in turn, influence population size and composition.

The CDE working group meets throughout the semester to discuss new and developing research in the rich area of spatial and environmental demography. If you would like to join, please fill out this form. If you have any questions, please contact Katherine Curtis or Malia Jones.
