Program areas at PRB

INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS: An expert consultation in collaboration with PACE-Policy, Advocacy, Communication Enhanced for Population and Reproductive Health-expanded the concept of the demographic dividend-the accelerated economic growth that can occur as a population age structure matures, given strategic investments in health, education, economic policy, and governance. PRBs original analysis associates countries population age distribution with the likelihood of their experiencing high levels of four dividends-health, education, economic growth, and political stability-as median age increases, based on many countries experiences from the 1970s to 2010s.

Through the establishment of a Data Products Redesign Group, comprised of ACS and decennial census data users, PRB help support an efficient and effective means to collect informal feedback about new ACS and 2020 Census data products and distribution channels. PRB developed an interactive, online data visualization showing trends in U.S. death rates since 1980 for men and women ages 55 and older by state. Its examination of regional disparities highlights the concentration of higher adult death ...
