Hopkins Population Center (HPC) stimulates and facilitates innovative, impactful research that combines the core strengths in social science, public health, medical science, and biostatistics in emerging areas of population research. HPC promotes innovative methodology beyond traditional demography to integrate systems science and computational modeling. HPC promotes exemplary interdisciplinary research that is translational to inform policy makers, with a priority on the growth of young investigators. Our research is rooted in three primary research areas:
- Poverty and Inequality
- Sexual and Reproductive Health
- Family, Maternal and Child Health
