Emerson Augusto Baptista is Professor at the Asian Demographic Research Institute (ADRI), within the School of Sociology and Political Science, Shanghai University. Geographer, M.Sc. in Geography (GIS), and Ph.D. in Demography. Post Doctorate at Brown University (USA), Institute at Brown for Environment and Society. His research focuses on the spatial analysis of demographic aspects, particularly mortality and migration.

📖 Spatial Analysis for Population Studies
This course provides an overview of spatial themes and techniques in demography. Examples will be drawn from many substantive areas of demography (e.g., mortality, fertility, urbanization, migration, poverty). Students will learn about spatial construction of place, basic mapping skills and spatial data creation and geoprocessing as well as statistical methods to explore and model spatially-referenced data to answer demographic questions. In the most advanced topics, students examine the special difficulties that spatial data may create for standard regression approaches and learn models and approaches for undertaking multivariate regression analysis in the presence of spatial heterogeneity and/or spatial dependence. Emphasis in the course is evenly split between learning how to make maps and a variety of spatial analyses.
Topics covered include thematic mapping, spatial autocorrelation, spatial cluster detection, and spatial point pattern analysis. An important aspect of the course is to gain expertise in the use of software for spatial statistical analysis, such as the ArcGIS, GWR4 and GeoDa software.
