Event details

Colloquium with Steven Ruggles, professor in history and population studies from the University of Minnesota and director of the IPUMS, the world's largest population database which includes over a billion people in 365 censuses from 94 countries. This database converts census microdata into a format that can then be compared with other countries and time periods so as to provide analyses of social and economic changes over time.

The colloquium, organised by the Centre for Demographic Studies (CED), will focus on family systems, demographic changes and residing with family members.

The event will take place at the CED's Àngels Torrents Hall at the UAB, and will also be streamed live here (1984 password).
