The Population Mobility and Spatial Demography Program supports research on the effects of population mobility on population health, causes and consequences of population mobility, the effects of environmental change on population health and the reciprocal influences of population and environmental change. In addition, the Program supports research on interactions between health and mobility, mobility and infectious disease transmission, health and place, and immigrant adaptation and assimilation and immigrant health.

Research that informs our scientific understanding of the effects of mobility on sending and receiving communities both domestic and internationally and on other components of demographic change, as well as the effects of policy and economic conditions on mobility, is also of interest. Methodological work supported by this Program includes research to improve data collection, analysis, and estimation in the area of population mobility. The PDB does not support research on individual or family-level interventions related to population mobility.​
