Population Resource Center
The mission of the Population Resource Center is to further the development of public policy by promoting the use of accurate population data and sound, objective analysis of these data. Convinced that demographic change is among a handful of basic factors that determine social and economic progress, the Center organizes educational programs that link demographic trends with a wide range of public policy issues. The programs help inform the debate and serve as a bridge between the social science community and the world of public policy.
The goal of the PRC is to enable policymakers to incorporate the latest research findings in population change into the development of public policy. To achieve this goal, the Center organizes a variety of educational and informational programs providing a link to help policymakers draw the connection between demographic, social and economic change and public policy issues.
