Yun Kim Population Research Lab

Since its inception in 1968, The Yun Kim Population Research Laboratory (PRL) has served as a center for demographic research and training at Utah State University. Today, the primary mission of the PRL is to stimulate and support quality scientific research on a range of population issues affecting our state, nation and world. Research productivity among our faculty facilitates another key mission of the PRL – to train and mentor the next generation of applied demographers and population scholars through the M.S. and Ph.D. programs in Sociology. Through seminars and research support, the PRL serves to create a vibrant community of population scholars at Utah State University.


We are excited to announce that October of 2018 will be the Lab's fiftieth anniversary as an active and vibrant member of the Utah State University community and of the Department of Sociology, Social Work and Anthropology.


In honor of this important milestone, we will be holding an Anniversary Party on 12 October 2018. We hope that you will save that date and be prepared to join us in Logan for a day-long celebration. The event will include several brief talks by friends and graduates of the Lab, and will, of course, end with a reception honoring each of you as friends and graduates.


I hope that you will be able to join us on this date. We look forward to having you back in Logan with all of us. If, between now and then, you have questions, please feel free to contact me.
