The Evolutionary Demography Group applies the theoretical framework of evolutionary biology to human demographic behaviour. It combines both social and natural science to explore questions of demographic interest, such as why do people have the number of children that they do? It draws on anthropology and psychology, as well as demography and evolutionary biology.
