Measuring maternal mortality
Dr. Wilmoth has been on the faculty at UC Berkeley since 1990. He teaches courses on the history and consequences of population dynamics, the determinants of human mortality and health, and methods of demographic and statistical analysis. His research focuses on explanations of historical mortality trends, models of mortality variation (by age, time, and other factors), techniques for population forecasting, and methods of demographic estimation. As a consultant for the World Health Organization and the World Bank, he led development of a new method for estimating global levels and trends of maternal mortality.
