The Centre for Population Change (CPC) has won the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Impact Prize for the Outstanding Public Policy Impact category. Says the ESRC, the CPC's "improved methods for measuring fertility, migration and mortality in the UK has allowed better policy decision-making."
