Carlo Giovanni Camarda
Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR), May 25–29, 2020

This course provides an applied introduction to modern and flexible statistical techniques for modeling demographic data. Traditional demographic methods tend to either apply a large number of parameters or impose strong parametric assumptions. In this course you will learn to master flexible models to extract the most from your data with the fewest assumptions.
