Welcome to the Southern Demographic Association!

The Southern Demographic Association (SDA) is a scientific and educational organization comprised of persons with professional interests in demography and population studies.

SDA’s membership includes, but is in no way limited to, demographers with professional or personal ties to the southern United States. SDA welcomes and encourages the participation of individuals, and the study of demographic topics, from any region or country.


Save the Date: The 2024 Southern Demographic Association meeting will be held October 16-18 in Savannah, Georgia, at the DeSoto Hotel. Stay tuned for more information about the conference and abstract submissions.

We look forward to seeing you all in Savannah!




Diversity & Inclusion Statement

The Southern Demographic Association is committed to creating an environment that welcomes and supports all demographers. SDA members strive to eliminate bias in their professional activities, and they work to recognize and resist discrimination based on age, race, ethnicity, national origin, citizenship status, socioeconomic status, religion, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, disability, health conditions, political affiliation, family status, or any other applicable basis proscribed by law. They are sensitive to cultural, individual, and role differences in serving, teaching, and studying the population.
