UP Population Institute

The University of the Philippines Population Institute (UPPI) was formally established as a unit of the University of the Philippines on November 1964 with an initial grant from the Ford Foundation. Located at the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy (Palma Hall) building, it is the only academic institution in the Philippines offering graduate level training in Demography and Population Studies. It has two degree programs, Master of Arts in Demography (MA Demo) and Master in Population Studies (MPopS).

As an academic unit, UPPI performs the three-pronged function of teaching, research, and extension. Through its links with the government, local and international agencies, it plays an important role in the analysis of population-related issues by way of a strong program of research and extension backed up by facilities for analysis of survey data and a data archive of surveys on population-related courses.
