Primary Research Areas
CCPR’s research focuses on four signature themes that are central to the study of population dynamics: 1) Demography of Family, Household, and Individual Well-Being; 2) Migration and Immigration; 3) Inequality and Health Disparities; 4) Fertility and Reproductive Health. CCPR Fellows examine these topics at multiple levels, including the roles of individual behavior, families and social networks, macrosocial factors (e.g., labor market conditions, social stratification, public policy, and inequality and racism), and social, environmental effects on biological processes. The signature themes are described below, along with key innovations by CCPR Fellows. In the Cores, we illustrate the impact of CCPR’s P2C infrastructure support on Fellows’ research, including the collaborations we foster across disciplines and the activities and services that facilitated population research.
