Teacher: Patama Vapattanawong
This course requires an enrolment key

Course Description: This elective course is designed to introduce the
advanced techniques on demographic projections focusing on various models of
long-term demographic and economic change based on population projections. This
course covers the methodology of conventional population projection, cohort
component method. The approaches of determining the projection input in terms
of fertility, mortality, and migration projection are studied. In addition, the
probabilistic population projection, a presently favorable technique, and other
alternative techniques are explored. The projections of socioeconomic
characteristics of population are also discussed. Students will formulate projections
by using spreadsheet or other appropriate software.

Course description
: PRDE 662 Indirect Techniques for Demographic 

This course is designed to introduce students to concepts of indirect techniques for demographic estimation used to study changes in population size and composition. The course begins with reviewing all standard measurements of fertility, mortality, and migration.  Methods of evaluating quality of data including age accuracy and data consistency, stable population, demographic models, and model life tables are reviewed. The indirect techniques of demographic estimation cover the estimation of fertility, infant and child mortality, adult mortality, and migration, as well as estimation of the time points to which estimates refer.
