Areas of Interest

The population dynamics research findings to be translated and disseminated through support from this funding announcement must be within the scientific mission of NICHD Population Dynamics Branch (PDB). The PDB scientific mission is to support research, research training, and data collection in three areas:

  • Demography: The scientific study of human populations, including fertility, mortality and morbidity, migration, population distribution, nuptiality, family demography, population growth and decline, and the causes and consequences of demographic change.
  • Population health: Research on human health, productivity, behavior, and development at the population level, using population representative samples, policy or natural experiments, or statistical simulations of populations.
  • Reproductive health: Behavioral and social science research on family planning, infertility, sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS.

Applicants must demonstrate scientific expertise in all three areas.

Research focusing primarily on elderly populations and individuals is not within the scope of this initiative.
