Applied Demographics Studio
The Applied Demographics Studio is a consulting
outreach program of the Center for Demography &
Population Health at Florida State University.
What We Do
Population changes - growth, decline, aging, ethnic diversity, location, distribution, and density - in Florida and its neighboring states raise concerns about issues ranging from economic development to population health to education to urban sprawl to natural resource sustainability. Formulating effective strategies to deal with these concerns requires current, concise, comprehensive information. The Studio provides demographically-informed statistical analyses tailored to the specific needs of local and state government agencies, businesses, and non-governmental organizations.
The Studio applies demographic research and analytic tools to address current, real world issues confronting government agencies, businesses, and community organizations. The Studio supports government program and policy development and business planning and performance.
The Studio evaluates population characteristics relevant to policy, programs, and plans. This includes the dynamics of population change and critical population characteristics including age, ethnicity, income, education, and household composition.
The Studio is a collaborative, multidisciplinary workshop, providing you with the benefits of the demographic expertise of faculty from urban and regional planning, sociology, geography, and economics.
