The Population Studies Center (PSC) at the University of Pennsylvania has fostered research and training in population since it's founding in 1962. The PSC has received support from a number of federal and private funding sources since its inception, including support from the NICHD and NIA Population Research Infrastructure Programs. The PSC Research Associates come from five schools and 13 different academic departments including, Sociology, Economics, Business, Nursing, Urban Studies, and Medicine. In addition, the Center also includes many affiliates from other departments at Penn and nearby universities. The PSC also houses the Graduate Group in Demography.
