It should be no surprise that the size and trends of a country’s population should affect its economic well-being. But precisely how these dynamics work is not fully understood. Clarifying the relationship among these factors is a crucial first step toward public policies that can help lift a country’s people from poverty. And it is to that end that The Population & Poverty (PopPov) Research Network works, studying how these factors interact on both the micro and macro levels and how they affect individuals, households, and economic growth at the national and regional levels. The PopPov Research Network Web site offers researchers and policymakers alike a chance to learn from each other and advance a field that holds the promise of improved lives for millions of people.
