Welcome to CPIP! 

The Center for Population, Inequality, and Policy at UCI is focused on advancing research on socioeconomic factors that directly impact inequality. Our faculty investigate the causes and consequences of this inequality as well as policies and other strategies designed to improve well-being of the less advantaged. Our research covers six areas: Child & Adolescent Development, Maternal & Infant Health, Criminal Legal Contact & the Life Course, Migration, Institutions & Human Capital, and Population Data Science & Methodology.

The Center promotes research and collaboration among UCI faculty that draws on the social sciences, public health, education, social ecology, and natural sciences. CPIP’s affiliates have a track record of high-quality population research on inequality that spans disciplinary boundaries and important areas of public policy. CPIP is a joint effort by UCI’s Office of Research, School of Social Sciences, Program in Public Health, and School of Social Ecology
