Aims and Scope-
Population Research and Policy Review (PRPR) provides broad, interdisciplinary coverage of population research, and offers an up to date and solid basis of information on the policy implications of recent research relevant to the causes and consequences of changing population size and composition. PRPR is the only demography journal that publishes work using ethnographic methods, comparative-historical methods, discourse analysis, and others.
Coverage includes demographic, economic, social, political and health research papers and related contributions which are based on either the direct scientific evaluation of particular policies or programs, or general contributions to advance knowledge that informs policy and program development. The journal publishes top quality material of interest to professionals working in the fields of population, and those fields which intersect and overlap with population studies.
Published six times a year, Population Research and Policy Review is the flagship journal of the Southern Demographic Association (SDA).
Unique Selling Points:
- Publishes articles using any well executed methodological approach
- Includes articles advancing knowledge that informs policy and program development
- Combines coverage of population research with analysis of the consequent policy implications
- The flagship journal of the Southern Demographic Association (SDA)

Population Research and Policy Review is proud to be sponsored by The Southern Demographic Association (SDA). SDA is a scientific and educational organization, incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia. It is comprised of persons with professional interests in demography and population studies.
SDA’s membership includes, but is in no way limited to, demographers with professional or personal ties to the southern United States. SDA welcomes and encourages the participation of individuals, and the study of demographic topics, from any region or country.
SDA holds an annual meeting each fall, usually in October. The SDA meeting provides a friendly venue for people to present academic and applied demographic research, to discuss and learn about population issues, and to meet others with common interests.
