Full details of the series

In this talk I will define spatial demography and reflect on its position within the wider discipline, as well as discussing future or anticipated directions the field may take, with the focus once more on both research and instruction. I will discuss salient issues in conceptual and spatial thinking, data privacy, data and measurement, and methods and applications (including comparisons between multilevel, network and spatial analytical frameworks). Also, I will include a review of spatial demography as presented in the pages of some of our journals, along with a discussion on the future contribution of spatial demographers in big research questions, and their engagement in interdisciplinary and team science, including mixed method research and qualitative studies.
