UTSA demography students at national conference in Florida

(Nov. 17, 2011) -- This year, Ph.D. students from the UTSA Department of Demography presented papers and posters at the annual meeting of the Southern Demographic Association (SDA) and outnumbered the students from all other sociology-demography programs.

This was particularly remarkable since the meeting was in Tallahassee, Fla., and hosted by Florida State University. FSU has a large sociology-demography program offering a terminal M.A. degree in demography and a Ph.D. in sociology. UTSA student presenters outnumbered even those of the host institution with a dozen current UTSA students and four recent Ph.D. graduates.

The SDA is the only regional professional demography association in the United States with members and officers from across the country.

UTSA demography students benefitted greatly from the opportunity to network, build presentation skills and engage in discussions about their research with conference participants.

The participation of UTSA demography students was supported in part by the UTSA Office of the Vice President for Research, Department of Demography, Institute for Demographic and Socioeconomic Research, and several employers of current and past demography students.
