What is CCPR?

The California Center for Population Research (CCPR) was established in 1998 and has since, been a leading research center for research and training in demography. CCPR is comprised of over 140 active faculty researchers from an array of academic disciplines, such as epidemiology, public policy, economics, sociology, and public welfare. CCPR researchers span several schools, including the College of Letters and Sciences, the Division of Social Sciences, the School of Public Health, the School of Medicine, and the School of Public Affairs, as well as academic departments within UCLA.

The accomplishments in research and training would not be possible without the financial support from the UCLA Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost, the Vice Chancellor of Research the College of Letters and Sciences, from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Infrastructure Support grant, and from faculty research grants from a variety of public and private sponsors, such as the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Russell Sage Foundation, and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.


The California Center for Population Research at UCLA (CCPR) is an interdisciplinary research organization. CCPR supports and fosters innovative and ambitious research and training in population science. We provide research resources, services, and environment to enhance research quality. CCPR trains the next generation of population scientists to carry out informed research in social, economic, and public health. CCPR seeks deeper understanding of the demographic and social determinants of health and the effects of health on population dynamics and socioeconomic well-being.
