Since 1970, the Southern Demographic Association has hosted an annual meeting each fall, usually in October. The SDA meeting provides a friendly venue for people to present academic and applied demographic research, to discuss and learn about population issues, and to meet others with common interests.
The 2022 Southern Demographic Association annual meeting will be held October 17-19 in Knoxville, Tennessee, at the Knoxville Crown Plaza. We are excited to be in person again!

This session will address the early days of SDA (known then as SRDG – Southern Regional Demographic Group), including why and how it originated in Oak Ridge in 1970. We will also remember those SRDG/SDA former presidents who are now deceased. The session will include on its panel a bunch of old-time members, who will reminisce about the early days of the SRDG.
COVID-19 Precautions: SDA will follow the current recommendations of the CDC for this conference.
