Population continues to be one of the most important issues facing society. Barely a week goes by without mention of population and human geography issues in the media.

As social statisticians, we make it our business to analyse and understand a huge amount of data and statistics surrounding a whole range of characteristics of populations and society.

Our particular interests relate to health and wellbeing, population and migration. We collaborate with colleagues across the University, contributing our analytical expertise to address these challenging issues.
