ICPSR Summer Program 2013 Workshop
Longitudinal Analysis of Historical Demographic Data
July 22–August 16, 2011
Ann Arbor, Michigan
Historical demography is an interdisciplinary field with a long history of important contributions to population studies and to the understanding of the past. This research has revealed a great deal about fundamental demographic processes such as household and family dynamics, the transition to smaller family units, pre- and post-industrial population dynamics, the demographic transition, migration patterns, and demographic responses to economic stress. This 4-week course will emphasize the use of event history analysis and data management of historical databases drawn from European, North American, and Asian populations. Longitudinal data will be employed to construct time-varying covariates and contextual variables for individuals, families, and households. Methodological issues such as censoring and incomplete information will also be addressed.

Application deadline: May 3, 2013
Applications are competitive. Participants will be selected on the basis of their interest in the topical areas, prior methodological training, and potential for research contributions that promote longitudinal analysis. Participants should be familiar with quantitative methods, including regression analysis. Applications must include a vita, and cover letter summarizing research interest, course objectives, and experience. Students also need to include a letter of reference from their advisor and a transcript of grades. Those who need preparation in statistics are advised to attend quantitative courses during the June–July session of the ICPSR Summer Program. A limited number of travel grants (between $500 and $2,000 US) will be awarded. For those admitted to the workshop, no fee will be charged to attend the Longitudinal Analysis course.
