Research workshop on
Digital Demography in the Era of Big Data
Thursday, 6/6/2019 to 6/7/2019
Location: Institute of Statistics and Cartography, Seville, Spain
Demography has been a data-driven discipline since its birth. Data collection and the development of formal methods have sustained most of the major advances in our understanding of population processes. The global spread of Internet, social media, cellphones and, more broadly, digital technologies, have generated new opportunities for demographic research. At the same time, the use of social media, Internet and smartphones is affecting people's daily activities as well as life planning, with implications for demographic behaviour.
This Research Workshop is organized by the IUSSP Digital Demography Panel, LONGPOP H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie ITN project, Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, DisCont (ERC Advanced Grant, Bocconi University), the Institute of Economy, Geography and Demography (Spanish National Research Council) & the Institute of Statistics and Cartography of Andalusia.
Organizing committee: Diego Ramiro Fariñas, Elena Manzanera, Emilio Zagheni, Francesco Billari.
