About us

PrintThe Population and Health Research Group is one of the largest groups in the UK researching the geographies of population, health and housing, and we collaborate actively with colleagues in the UK and internationally in disciplines throughout the social and medical sciences.


Our work uses quantitative analysis of censuses, surveys and administrative data; qualitative data; and mixed methods. Our research is notable for its applied policy-relevance and our record of attracting funding from research councils, charities, the EU, and central and local government (see the Research and Project pages for more information).

The group hosts the ESRC Centre for Population Change (CPC), the ESRC Centre on Dynamics of Ethnicity (CoDE), the Census and Administrative Data Longitudinal Studies (CALLS) Hub and is affiliated with the Centre for Housing Research (CHR) and the ERC DeprivedHoods project. We are always interested in new collaborations so do get in touch.
