Andrei Rogers, CU Boulder professor emeritus of geography, recently received the 2018 Mindel Sheps Award at the Population Association of America meeting.
The Mindel Sheps award is given every two years for 'outstanding contributions to demographic methodology' and is the world's highest recognition in formal demography. For the fifth time in award history, a current or former International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) World Population Program (POP) scholar has been honored.
At IIASA, the first formal population activities began in 1974 and were merged into the Human Settlement and Services (HSS) Program. The main emphasis was on international migration, and under the leadership (1974-1983) of Rogers, IIASA becomes the cradle of the methods of multi-state population analysis.
