Ní Bhrolcháin, Máire (2003) The education and professional experience of demographers: results of an international survey , Southampton, GB Southampton Statistical Sciences Research Institute 30pp. (S3RI Applications and Policy Working Papers, A03/11).

Record type: Monograph (Working Paper)


This paper presents findings relating to the education, disciplinary background and professional experience of 634 demographers responding to a mainly internet-based survey carried out in 1999-2000. Two thirds of the survey respondents have some training in demography, and virtually all have studied some other subject also. Academic backgrounds are quite varied, with sociology (broadly defined), economics, mathematics/statistics and geography being the most common. Findings presented relate to: the combinations of disciplines studied, current practise of discipline of origin, interdisciplinary activity, place of education, education abroad, current and past sectors of employment and time-use. Differentials by age, gender and region of residence or birth are considered.
