PADG 5370 - The Politics and Demographics of Public Policy Formation and Implementation (3)

This course explores the theory and application of demographic impacts on public policy.  Structured around three components – demography, public policy and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) – it examines political attitudes and behaviors that influence the support and administration of public policies.  The course critically examines the relationships between demographic changes and public policy in assessing the impact of demographic factors on citizen support of government programs and their successful implementation.  Students will develop skills in using GIS to show, through mapping, spatial linkages found between specific population changes and the administration of government programs.
