Free Virtual Training Workshops on Fertility Analysis and Projection
The ESRC-funded FertilityTrends project is organising two free, half-day, virtual training workshops this Autumn on methods for Fertility Analysis and Projection. Participants can attend either or both of the workshops, which will be held on Zoom. The workshops contain theoretical and practical components, with computer demos performed in R (code will be made available). The workshops are aimed at national and local government statisticians, social and demographic researchers, and others who are interested in understanding how to analyse fertility trends and make projections for the future. Situations where this is important include planning maternity services and anticipating demand for school places.
