The next two digits describe the general topic of the course, as follows:

00-09: event-history analysis and other statistical methods; research design
10-19: formal demography and modeling, simulation, and forecasting methods
20-29: fertility and family dynamics
30-39: mortality, morbidity, longevity, population aging
40-49: economic demography and population/economic/environment interactions
50-59: migration and spatial demography
