North Carolina’s Changing Demographics
Dr. Rebecca Tippett, Carolina Population Center at UNC-Chapel Hill 

North Carolina’s urban spaces are among the fastest growing places in the world. Our state is a magnet for Americans and immigrants alike. While the topline demographic data show population growth, the real insights come once you begin to peel away layers and look more closely at who lives here, who is moving in and how those trends are altering our state’s economy. Rebecca’s blog is mandatory reading for anyone involved in North Carolina policy decisions. She’s an insightful speaker who leaves audiences with an understanding about how demographics affect our lives. 

Dr. Rebecca Tippett is the founding Director of Carolina Demography at the Carolina Population Center,which started in 2013 at UNC-Chapel Hill. With more than a decade of experience analyzing demographic and economic data, she has spent the last 7 years translating research into specific, usable knowledge and information that is useful for decision-making, evaluation and policy. 

At Carolina Demography, she helps North Carolina government and business leaders understand and anticipate how population change affects them and their organizations. A transplant to North Carolina from the Midwest, she earned her B.A. in sociology and political science from Ohio State University and her M.A. and Ph.D. in sociology from Duke University.
