The Population Association of America’s annual meeting is the premier conference of demographers and social and health scientists from the United States and abroad. Here demographers at all career stages are afforded the opportunity to present their research in oral and poster sessions, hear others’ findings, and network with their peers.


Since PAA’s first conference in 1932, much important research has been presented on topics ranging from migration to reproductive health to race and gender issues.
