For more than 70 years, the Population Reference Bureau has been informing people about the population dimensions of important social, economic, and political issues. Our mission is to be the leader in providing timely and objective information on U.S. and international population trends and their implications. PRB’s mission is carried out through these major activities: Publish, disseminate, and promote print and electronic material. PRB publishes the Population Bulletin , the World Population Data Sheet , PRB Reports on America , as well as specialized publications cov- ering population and public policy issues in the United States and abroad, particularly in developing countries. PRB’s website, www.prb.org, is updated approximately every three weeks with new articles and reports. Collaborate with organizations to develop and implement strate- gies for communicating with policymakers. We provide technical support to U.S. and international organizations to increase their ability to communicate research results and to increase the use of demographic data and research in policymaking. Conduct training on policy communications and Internet use. Through short-term workshops, PRB helps individuals and organi- zations in developing countries, especially journalists, educators, and researchers, to find and use demographic data and research in policymaking. Collaborate with journalists to expand the coverage of population, health, and environment subjects. PRB makes research accessible to print and broadcast journalists through our library’s reference services, and through media networks, background publications, news releases, seminars, and press conferences and briefings. PRB is a membership organization. Members receive the quarterly Population Bulletin , the annual World Population Data Sheet , PRB Reports on America , and selected additional publications.
