Demography, defined as the scientific study of human populations, is often of fundamental importance to policy design. This course provides a formal treatment of core population topics in the context of public policy with an emphasis on public health. We will cover the determinants of health in large population, social inequalities, migration, fertility, and population aging. The course will take a case-based format and will consist of formal lectures and group activities.
