Dr Andrew Hinde is Associate Professor in Demography within Economic, Social and Political Sciences at the University of Southampton.

My first degree was in geography. I was then a PhD student in the Department of Geography at the University of Sheffield, where I obtained my PhD in 1985. I subsequently spent two years as a temporary lecturer at Oxford University before moving to the Centre for Population Studies at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. After a brief spell as a research fellow in the Department of Economics at Birkbeck College, London, I moved to Southampton in 1989, and I have been here ever since.

Research interests

My research interests fall into two areas:

  1. various aspects of the demography of developing countries, especially recent fertility changes (though in the years from 2010 onwards I mainly participate in this research through editorial work on journals and the supervision of PhD students)
  2. historical demography of England between (about) 1800 and 1950.

I also supervise or co-supervise three PhD students. I am the postgraduate research students' coordinator. I am the University of Southampton's representative on the Scientific Board of the European PhD in socioeconomic and statistical studies. I am currently a member of the Scientific Review Board of the online journal Demographic Research, a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Biosocial Science, and a member of the editorial board of the journal Local Population Studies.

Research grants

I was co-investigator on the ESRC-funded research project 'The health and morbidity of friendly society members in the late 19th and 20th centuries', March 2007 - May 2009 (principal investigator Professor Bernard Harris, Division of Sociology & Social Policy, other co-investigator Dr Martin Gorsky, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine).

Work in progress

  1. analysis of sex differentials in mortality in 19th century England
  2. an investigation into the relationship between the New Poor Law and various aspects of the demography of England between 1834 and the end of the 19th century
  3. analysis of sickness and mortality in Britain, 1850–1950 using Friendly Society data
  4. writing a book entitled What is Population History? to be published by Polity Press
