      Center for Demographic and Social Analysis (C-DASA)

      The Campus Center for Demographic and Social Analysis formalizes a decade of highly productive collaboration between researchers in a dozen departments. With nearly 50 faculty affiliates and 30 associated graduate students, C-DASA is the focal point for a host of population-related research activities at UCI. Expertise in child and youth outcomes; demographic, spatial and social network methodologies; social inequality; and health and well-being make C-DASA a leading center for research on the well-being of local, national, and global populations. C-DASA provides small seed grants to encourage multi-disciplinary projects, collaborative studies, grant proposals, and research by junior faculty. Support for C-DASA comes from the Office of Research. The weekly Population, Society and Inequality Seminar Series fosters dialogue on current research, funding opportunities, analytic approaches, and new data sets.
