A Woman’s Place is in the Fill-in-the-Blank: 50 Years of Demographic Change
Dr. Lisa Niedert, Director of Data Services, Population Studies Center, University of Michigan. Dr. Niedert’s role is to help users find and analyze data from a wide variety of sources; her current project is an analysis of the college educated population in the U.S., looking particularly at differences across states. Her talk will focus on how the landscape in the United States has changed for women (and men) over the last 50 years: marriage, fertility, education, and work. It will be based on data from the federal statistical system. The talk will also devote some time to how and why the government collects data. And who knew that the first female director of the Census Bureau was from Ann Arbor?

Learn New Things! Meet New Friends! Have Fun!
Just over 110 years ago a small group of women graduates in Ann Arbor gathered together to form the Ann Arbor Branch of the Association of Collegiate Alumni – the forerunner of AAUW. Today we are a vibrant, active group of some 300 intellectually curious women, devoted to improving the lives of women and girls through education. Along the way we manage to improve our own lives – and have a lot of fun. We welcome new members.
