PSC presents a panel discussion on Census 2020: Opportunities and Challenges, with Barbara A. Anderson, William Frey, David Johnson.
Dr. Anderson studies the relationship between social change and demographic change. Her research focuses on the former Soviet Union, China and South Africa. Her teaching centers on the relationship between social and demographic change and on technical demography.
Dr. Frey specializes in migration, population redistribution, and the demography of metropolitan areas. He is currently studying the dynamics of race and status-selective immigration and internal migration dynamics in U.S. metropolitan areas with the 1980-2000 Censuses. He also studies the migration and distribution of the elderly population in the U.S. as well as poverty migration determinants. Frey directs the Social Science Data Analysis Network (www.SSDAN.net) that creates demographic media for educators and policy-makers.
Dr. Johnson's research interests include the measurement of inequality and mobility (using income, consumption and wealth), the effects of tax rebates, equivalence scale estimation, poverty measurement, and price indexes.
