The purpose of this workshop was to assess key factors involved in the production of long-term scenarios of U.S. demographic change for use in interdisciplinary analysis of social and environmental issues. The workshop identified key user needs for demographic information; assessed observational, data, and modeling capabilities to produce such long-term projections; and considered the relevance of non-demographic factors and global context for U.S. demographic change.
Several presentations were given by IAM group staff, including:
- Brian O'Neill - Introduction to the workshop
- Brian O'Neill - Overview on the use of U.S. population projections in global and environmental change applications
- Brian O'Neill - Projections, scenarios, and their relation
- Bryan Jones - Data Challenges for Spatial Population Projections
- Leiwen Jiang - Demographic Components of the New Socioeconomic Scenarios for Climate Change Research.
