This blog is intended to go along with Population: An Introduction to Concepts and Issues, by John R. Weeks, published by Cengage Learning. The latest edition is the 12th (it came out in 2015), but this blog is meant to complement any edition of the book by showing the way in which demographic issues are regularly in the news.
If you are a user of my textbook and would like to suggest a blog post idea, please email me at: email@example.com

Eddie Hunsinger has a graduate degree in Demography from UC, Berkeley, and is the State Demographer at the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development. Those are impressive enough qualifications, but I have just been alerted to a genuinely awesome website that he maintains, in which he provides access to (and descriptions of) a large array of really useful demographic tools. I admit that even I am not an expert in all of these, so I've got some work to do... I encourage you to check it out, and I bet you'll learn things you didn't know, but will find helpful to you.
