Methodological Development



The Centre for Social and Population Research is committed to advancing methodological development and innovation in the social sciences. A key objective of the Centre is to facilitate knowledge-sharing amongst researchers engaged in cutting-edge quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research. The CSPR Methods Program coordinates research training seminars and workshops, provides resources for accessing and using major social science datasets, and publishes discussion papers addressing key methodological issues and challenges.
