GERON GR 732 Demographic Methods in Aging

This course provides a foundation in basic demographic methods for gerontology doctoral students. Its underlying assumption is that population aging will be the major demographic phenomenon affecting this nation’s institutions over the next half century. Students develop an understanding of how demographic trends and characteristics of populations are measured and examine the social and policy implications of major demographic trends for the United States and other countries.
