Event description

Description

Age, period and cohort are three ways that things change in time, and their interdependence presents a problem to anyone hoping to analyse social science questions about things that change over time. For over 50 years, methods have been developed that aim to solve the ‘age-period-cohort identification problem’, but these have been subject to much criticism and debate that continues to this day. It has become clear to many that there is no mechanical solution to the APC identification problem, but that there are things researchers can do to gain useful insights, with limitations.

This conference brings together the key international figures involved in this debate, who will present some of the cutting edge methodological developments in APC analysis and visualisation, as well as considering the lessons that can be learned from continuing APC debates.

Speakers include:

Bob O’Brien, University of Oregon

Herb Smith, University of Pennsylvania

Louis Chauvel, University of Luxemburg

Liying Luo, Pennsylvania State University

Manfred te Grotenhuis, Radboud University Nijmegen

David Voas, University College London

Jon Minton, University of Glasgow

Andrew Bell, University of Sheffield

Supported by the British Academy, AQMeN, and the Sheffield Methods Institute
