The Center for Public Information on Population Research (CPIPR) at the Population Reference Bureau explains and publicizes the findings of population research and their implications. The Center serves the entire field of population sciences, by translating research into informa­tion that can be used by individu­als, families, and decision makers in the public and private sectors.

Center activities include:

  • Writing, producing, and disseminating web articles and Population Bulletins highlighting recent demographic research findings from other population centers
  • Hosting webinars to raise awareness of population issues and research findings in the U.S. and internationally
  • Organizing and hosting symposia and Congressional Briefings on population topics with policy implications, and posting webcasts and videos of symposia and briefings on the CPIPR website
  • Using social media to make demographic research findings accessible to a broad audience
