This workshop provides training in the production of population estimates and projections as well as the evaluation of data quality. Key tools include the Census Bureau’s Demographic Analysis and Population Projections System (DAPPS) and Population Analysis System (PAS) spreadsheets, the United Nations’ MORTPAK package, and other selected software. Case studies and hands-on exercises give participants an opportunity to work through the full range of analytical decisions required by a demographer in applying the techniques covered in the workshop. Participants who bring their own data have an opportunity to apply the techniques covered in the workshop and to receive feedback on how to interpret the results.
