Social Demography

Whilst much research on demography entails working with large data sets, another aspect of our interests in demography is in the role of small-scale studies in understanding the processes involved in demographic behaviour and how it changes through time. Patricia Jeffery’s research in South Asia explores the inter-connections of demographic behaviour with aspects of local social organisation, particularly gender politics within the household, changing livelihood options, and wider political developments such as communal politics.
