About Us

The University of St Andrews Population and Health Research Group is one of the largest groups in the United Kingdom researching the geographies of population, health, and housing. We actively collaborate with colleagues both internationally and in the UK in disciplines throughout the social and medical sciences.

Our work uses quantitative, qualitative, and mixed approaches to the census, survey, and administrative data. Our research is notable for its applied policy relevance and our record of attracting fundings from research councils, charities, the European Union, and central and local governments (see our Research page for more information).
