600 Million and Counting: How Demographers Missed the Astonishing Population Reduction Caused by China's Birth Planning Program: A Demography Brown Bag Talk

Colloquium | October 16 | 12-1 p.m. | 2232 Piedmont, Seminar Room

 Daniel Goodkind, Independent Researcher

 Population Science, Department of Demography

Daniel Goodkind is presenting as an Independent Researcher (Arlington, VA). His research focuses on population trends, social change, and fertility in Asia. Daniel's doctoral thesis (University of Pennsylvania, 1992) explored zodiacal birth timing preferences and patterns in East Asian societies, and this remains his favorite topic today. During two postdoctoral fellowships in anthropological demography (The Australian National University and the University of Michigan, 1992-1998), he implemented several small-scale surveys in Vietnam, which addressed such topics as its "one-or-two-child" policy, social change, and wellbeing of the elderly. Since 1998, Daniel has been at the U.S. Census Bureau where his work focuses on estimates and projections of demographic trends in Asia and other parts of the world. He has given workshops or provided technical assistance in Armenia, Bangladesh, China, Jordan, India, Mozambique, Namibia, Serbia, Thailand, and Zambia.
