Welcome!

The Campus Center for Demographic and Social Analysis is the highly productive collaboration between researchers in a dozen departments. With 50 faculty affiliates and 30 associated graduate students, C-DASA is the focal point for population-related research and training at UCI.
Affiliates use large-scale field experiments to study the effects of poverty on early childhood and jailhouse interviews to understand incarceration's impact on families. They capitalize on smart phone survey methods to follow up on hard-to-reach populations like parolees and adolescents over time. They link millions of geo-coded records on ER visits to Census Data to determine whether community health centers reduce emergency room use for psychiatric care. They marshal data from US states to determine whether higher minimum wages account for declining youth employment. With hundreds of millions of supermarket transactions, they measure whether U.S. Farm Bill programs lead food stamp recipients to buy healthier foods. To predict healthy babies, faculty affiliates monitor movements in utero.  From tiny kicks to big data, CDASA continues to promote collaboration and advances in population science and well-being with weekly seminars, notices of funding opportunities, graduate student training, and small seed grants for research.
