What is CCPR?
Established in 1998, the California Center for Population Research (CCPR) is a cooperative of UCLA faculty who carry out basic and applied research and training in demography. CCPR comprises over 70 active faculty researchers from the disciplines of anthropology, economics, epidemiology, geography, human resources & organizational behavior, law, medicine (pediatrics and psychiatry), population, psychology, community health services, public policy, social welfare, sociology, and urban planning. CCPR researchers span several schools---including the College of Letters and Sciences, the School of Public Health, the School of Medicine, and the School of Public Affairs---and multiple academic departments within UCLA. The Center receives financial support from the UCLA Vice Chancellor for Research and the College of Letters and Sciences, from an NICHD Infrastructure Support grant, and from faculty research grants from a variety of public and private sponsors, including the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Russell Sage Foundation, and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
