Research overview

Elspeth Graham studies population change and health variations. Current research projects focus on: (a) understanding small area variations in fertility in Britain; and (b) investigating the impact of parental migration on children left behind in South-East Asia. Other recent projects have examined intergenerational relationships and family formation, gender and sex ratios at birth in Asia, the mental health of stepparents, and mixed-tenure policies and social well-being. She continues to work on theory and method in human geography and demography, especially the development of mixed-method research.

She leads inter-disciplinary research teams in the UK (as Co-Director and Scottish Coordinator of the ESRC Centre for Population Change) and South-East Asia (as joint PI on the CHAMPSEA project). Current postgraduates under her supervision are researching the urban housing market and geographical variations in partnership and fertility, and the relationships between neighbourhood regeneration and community health.
