Population and the Environment: Analytical Demography and Applied Population Ethics/PaulHooper

From Complex Time

Notes by user Paul Hooper for Population and the Environment: Analytical Demography and Applied Population Ethics

Post-meeting Reflection

It's clear that an extended version of this course should include treatment of inequality (and more generally the distribution of the benefits and costs of environmental impacts within societies) and conflict between and within states. The #1 highlight is of course the group of people assembled here.

Reference material notes

The optional reading Kaplan, Hooper, Stieglitz & Gurven (2015) The Causal Relationship between Fertility and Infant Mortality: Prospective analyses of a population in transition provides worked examples of analyzing fertility data (using Cox proportional hazards to model time to next birth) and infant mortality data (using logistic regression).
