This Module provides an introduction to the technical basis of demography. It focuses on concepts and methods underpinning demographic analysis and provides a practical introduction for those professionally engaged with demographic work (in government departments, for example) as well as for MSc and doctoral students in a wide range of cognate disciplines.
The module is numerical but not highly mathematical so that some prior familiarity with quantitative methods is an advantage but not required. Extensive use is made of Excel worksheets.
