Committee on Population


The Committee on Population was established by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) in 1983 to bring the knowledge and methods of the population sciences to bear on major issues of science and public policy.  Through its syntheses and assessments the Committee on Population seeks to contribute to the advancement of population studies and to the informed development of population-related policies.  The committee also works to improve communication and collaboration among social scientists and policymakers in both developed and developing countries.


Members of the committee and the panels it organizes serve as volunteers.


The committee's work is supported by staff members of the Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education, and is made possible by the support of several government agencies and private foundations.
