The California Center for Population Research at UCLA is a campus-wide interdisciplinary research co-operative comprising nearly 200 faculty and researchers from disciplines spanning the behavioral, health, medical and social sciences.
California is a vastly expanding, richly diverse and constantly changing state. UCLA’s California Center for Population Research (CCPR), one of the nation’s top interdisciplinary centers of its kind, is tracking demographic habits and interpreting those statistics for the greater societal good.
Established in 1998, CCPR is a cooperative of university faculty who carry out basic and applied research and training in demography. The center consists of 90 faculty members and 90 graduate students spanning several schools and academic departments, including anthropology, economics, epidemiology, geography, human resources and organizational behavior, law, medicine (pediatrics and psychiatry), population, psychology, community health services, public policy, social welfare, sociology and urban planning.
CCPR studies include large-scale projects such as the Los Angeles Family and Neighborhood Survey, the Mexican Family Life Survey, the Explaining Family Change Project and a survey of internal immigrant populations in China. But the center has also explored historical research on Civil War soldiers, the consequences of African-American migration from the southern U.S., Latino health and many other subjects.
Contributions are critical to supporting CCPR’s position as one of the nation’s top interdisciplinary centers of its kind, attracting the best population researchers and recruiting outstanding students to UCLA. Your gift will help us attract the best researchers and outstanding students, and pursue new initiatives, including undergraduate courses in population and demography, and public outreach programs to give lay audiences better access to CCPR research results and expertise.
