Samuel Clark’s research is in the areas of demography and health. The goal is to improve measurement and understanding of interacting population and health issues affecting Africa. This involves developing new efficient, feasible methods to measure population and health indicators; development of new methods to ascertain cause of death; and a variety of observational studies to describe and document the epi-demographic transition in Africa. This work draws on expertise in demography, sociology, epidemiology, linguistics, statistics/biostatistics, and computer science.
