Using Twitter data for demographic research

22 November 2017 Agnese Vitali and Jennifer Holland, who are both working within the fertility and family strand of CPC, have written a paper with Dilek Yildiz, Jo Munson and Ramine Tinati that was published in Demographic Research today.

The paper Using Twitter data for demographic research explores the use of social media data as a promising source of social science data and investigates the challenges faced by social scientists when using the data, including how to derive the demographic characteristics of users and dealing with the nonrandom, nonrepresentative populations from which they are drawn.
