Topics and Techniques in International Population Health Workshop

International and comparative population research is a key cornerstone of population science and demography. International and comparative research is essential: 1. to learn the variations in population dynamics across different populations; 2. to predict the future of global population trends; and 3. to test hypotheses across widely varying context and determine the limits on forces producing population change. Our five-day intensive program on international and comparative population research begins with a one day review of the field and deep-dive into data creation for this science. Chitwan Valley Family Study (CVFS) will be used as a featured example and compared to other international population studies as appropriate for the topics.
