The Leverhulme Centre for Demographic Science (LCDS) is a multi-departmental research centre located at the Department of Sociology at the University of Oxford (www.demographicscience.ox.ac.uk), funded by the Leverhulme Trust and Nuffield College. Launched in October 2019 for an initial period of 10 years, the Centre is highly interdisciplinary, with the aim to disrupt and realign conventional thinking and infuse science into demography.
