About

The Hopkins Population Center (HPC) was established in 1971 with a mandate to stimulate and facilitate interdisciplinary population research throughout the Johns Hopkins University. It comprises about sixty Faculty Associates from four schools: Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, Bloomberg School of Public Health, School of Medicine, and School of Nursing.

The HPC has been supported by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, first as a P30 Center and more recently as an R24 Population Research Infrastructure Program. Dr. Andrew Cherlin served as Director of the HPC from 2007 to 2015. The current Director is Dr. Lingxin Hao.

Our associates are experts in a wide variety of population-based research topics, and they have received many honors for their scholarly achievements. Dr. Amy Tsui is the current President-elect of the Population Association of America, and Drs. Andrew Cherlin and Robert Moffitt have previously held this position.

The HPC has offices on both the Medical campus (where Public Health, Medicine, and Nursing are located) and the Homewood Campus (where Arts and Sciences is located).
