The Minnesota Population Center (MPC) is a University-wide interdisciplinary cooperative for demographic research. The MPC serves nearly 100 faculty affiliates spread over 26 departments in nine colleges at the University of Minnesota. As a leading developer and disseminator of demographic data, we also serve a broader audience of some 70,000 demographic researchers worldwide.

MPC fosters connections among population researchers across disciplines and opens new opportunities for large-scale collaborative externally funded research projects. The Center provides shared infrastructure for demographic analysis and administration to approximately sixty faculty members and research associates from ten colleges and nineteen departments at the University of Minnesota. The unit employs approximately a hundred research support staff, including computer programmers and technicians, administrative staff, research assistants, and data-entry staff. As a leading developer and disseminator of demographic data, we also serve a broader audience of some 25,000 demographic researchers worldwide. One of our central missions is to provide tools for the study of economic and social change and to encourage a historical approach to social policy analysis. To that end, we have developed several of the largest and most powerful demographic databases in the world.
