During the last decades, important methodological approaches for studying mortality and health have been developed in demography and related disciplines. The advanced methods, as well as the substantive results of their application, are included in the program of the International Autumn School. We invited leading international scholars to present their cutting-edge research. The course provides an opportunity to learn methods for measurement and analysis of the levels, components, and determinants of mortality and health; spatial mortality analysis; design and methods of epidemiological studies; and micro-simulation models of demographic processes. The course will also involve practical exercises to apply the skills/knowledge acquired in the lectures. The course will be useful for researchers, master-degree and doctoral students working or studying in the fields of demography, sociology, epidemiology, public health, social geography, and related disciplines. The working language will be English.
