There has been a rise in the number of demography-related blogs during recent years. In addition to individual researchers’ blogs, such as Weeks Population, by Hein de Haas or by Pablo Mateos, there are several nice collaborations:
- Demography Matters – is probably one of the first demography blogs that was started. They have a nice collection of links to population research institutes, other researchers, statistics offices, journals and conferences.
- Neodemos (in Italian)
- Urban Demographics – a blog with a focus on urban issues as the name suggests, but they often share general demography related information bits, maps, videos and assorted links, for example.
- Demographics Revealed – a partnership between the Population Reference Bureau and the Population Association of America which introduces basic concepts in demography. Have a look at ‘How to write about the fertility rate’, for example.
- ICPD Beyond 2014 (in Spanish) – Latin American and Carribean demographics 20 years after the Cairo Conference.
- Analyze survey data for free – is a survey methodology blog that analyses survey data sets with free tools such as the r language, the survey package, and sqlsurvey + monetdb. For collaborations and open-source code sharing please consult the website or contact Anthony Damico: email@example.com.
- Openpop.org – a blog started recently by the University of Oxford’s Department of Social Policy and Intervention, and Department of Sociology.
- The University of Southampton Geography and Environment Postgraduate Blog – they have written some interesting posts about medical geography and population mapping, to give some examples.
- Research Matters – a forum of the US Census Bureau that discusses research in government statistics.
- New Geography Demographics’ section – analyses on labour force issues, urban and suburban-related issues as well as demographic matters from an economic point of view.
