Aims & Scope

The Population Dynamics Lab is an open science forum currently hosted at the University of Washington’s Center for Studies in Demography & Ecology.  Its aim is to provide tools and evidence for understanding the distribution and change in human wellbeing at the population level.  These tools and evidence are peer-reviewed in real time and rapidly made available to address developing events, advance demographic science and increase popular understanding of population processes and change.

The lab welcomes submissions addressing all areas of demography.  Currently, it prioritizes submissions that advance science and insights at the intersection of demography, data science, and health. The Population Dynamics Lab operates with commitments to open science, to reproducibility, and to the power of peer-feedback and community engagement in methodological and theoretical advancements. The Population Dynamics Lab is intended to reach academic and public scholars, industry researchers, students, and professionals interested in open demographic sciences.
