Our mission is to promote the use of accurate population data and sound, objective analysis of this data in the making of public policy. For more than three decades the Center has been educating policymakers on population trends and their implications for public policy. We recruit leading experts to brief policymakers about important demographic trends—such as immigration, global population growth, and the aging of America—and help policymakers understand how those trends affect issues like the environment, education, the economy, and foreign policy. Formats range from large public symposiums and policy briefings to one-on-one meetings with policymakers and their staffs. While demographic trends have vital implications for public policy, the Center does not lobby; our goal is to inform the policy debate.
