Kenneth Hill

Harvard University

Dr. Hill's research interests have been in the development of demographic measurement methods (particularly for demographic outcomes that are hard to measure, such as child and adult mortality, unmet need for family planning, undocumented migration); the measurement of child mortality (with particular emphasis on tracking national trends and linking them to other changes); the exploration of links between demographic parameters and economic crisis; the impact of policy and programs on demographic change; the role of gender preferences on child health behaviors and fertility; the demography of sub-Saharan Africa; the role of development, particularly child mortality change, on fertility decline; and the measurement of demographic parameters for populations undergoing complex emergencies.
