Population Processes and Change

Recent emphases include rural youth outmigration, new patterns of immigration to rural areas of the US, consequences of HIV/AIDS on labor availability in Africa, and agricultural household labor decision-making processes.

We develop and extend knowledge of population processes such as family formation, fertility, population health and immigration that contribute to change in both rural and urban areas of the US and the world.
