See you at PAA 2018 in Denver!

As PAA 2018 is approaching, I’m looking forward to talk more about spatial prediction and subnational fertility disaggregation using DHS household survey data and our research on fine grid scale mapping of demographic indicators in low income countries at WorldPop (University of Southampton) and Flowminder.

Come meet me at the session Adolescent Transitions into Parenthood”, on Saturday 28th of April from 11:15am-12:45pm in Plaza Ballroom E (Sheraton Denver Downtown), I will present our paper The geography of fertility rates in low and middle-income countries: analysis of cross-sectional surveys from 69 countries”.

code = c("KWT1", "KWT2", "KWT3", "KWT4", "KWT5", "KWT6"),
name = c("Al-Jahra Governorate", "Capital (Al Asimah) Governorate", "Hawalli Governorate", "Al-Farwaniya Governorate", "Mubarak Al-Kabeer Governorate", "al Ahmadi Governorate"),
