    CPC starts its second phase of research

    After successfully gaining renewed core funding from the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) in 2013, CPC started its second phase of research on 1 January 2014. We are now undertaking work across five, instead of four, broad themes: fertility and family change; increasing longevity and the changing lifecourse; new mobilities and migration; integrated demographic estimation and forecasting; and understanding intergenerational relationships and exchange. Early 2014 has seen CPC in a planning and recruitment phase - look out for our updated project information due to appear on the CPC website soon.

    How to live to 100 - and enjoy it!

    Significant issues affecting every individual's life course are often hard to discern behind abstract figures like the number of births, the mortality rate, or net migration. To address this CPC has been successful in gaining ESRC funding to bring a major European exhibition to the UK. The exhibition aims to unravel the challenges and opportunities associated with demographic research. Through ten topical exhibition stands, interactive activities, information and games we will present this abstract knowledge in a way that allows visitors to recognise and reflect on how these demographic issues affect, and will affect, their own lives.
