Abstract: As the premier population sciences, epidemiology and demography face common challenges as the U.S. population ages, as the genomic revolution unfolds, and as computing power changes the scale of analysis by several orders of magnitude. Each discipline does need to develop new tools to address the changing research questions, and the best strategy for success includes increased collaboration between the disciplines. The paradigms of each discipline still offer important insights into the problems of both disciplines, so cross-training would be a simple step to begin enlarging the tool box for population science.
