Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The main targets of the course are the introduction of population geography and the related demographic issues through the use of international sources of population data (mainly DHS -Demographic and Health Surveys) and the measurement of population characteristics and change ( such as age, sex, fertility, mortality, health, social structure, …).
DHS are nationally- representative household surveys that provide data for a wide range of monitoring and impact evaluation indicators in the areas of population, health, and nutrition. DHS data set appears then as the core of quantitative materials to describe and assess population and health issues in over 90 developing countries.

The data will be used to understand, reproduce and interpret the quantitative analyses of population assessment. The analyses will be carried out with the Excel program.
