Kansas Population Center

The Kansas Population Center studies population in Kansas and the broader Midwest, exploring individual and community patterns from cradle to grave. The KPC is especially interested in population dynamics related to gender, economic development, health, and rural communities. The KPC is excited about the possibilities big data holds for shedding light on research questions addressing small population groups.
