Welcome to CPIP! 

The Center for Population, Inequality, and Policy at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) is focused on advancing demographic research on socioeconomic factors that directly impact inequality. Faculty in the center investigate the causes and consequences of inequality, as well as policies and other strategies designed to improve well-being – including employment, education, health, housing, and income. 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.

UCI researchers across social sciences, social ecology, public health, and education have a track record of high-quality population research spanning disciplinary boundaries and informing 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
