The course introduces the standard methods of forecasting population, households and the labour force, each with age and sex detail, through use of the POPGROUP software. The course uses Data Modules to explore government forecasts and participants will make their own alternative scenarios.
The course is motivated by the issues in policy and planning that require population and housing projections, and the impact of housing plans on population. The focus is on sub-national forecasts for districts of Britain, but the principles transfer directly to national forecasts, to sub-national forecasts of other areas, and to social or ethnic groups, each of which are discussed.
The emphasis is on hands-on learning through practical sessions that take the participants through the preparation of inputs, running forecasts, analysing results, and adjusting forecasts to implement a range of scenarios or assumptions.
