Professor Kelley specializes in the study of economic demography, history, and development. He is most interested in research involving demographic change in the Third World and the consequences of such shifts. He has specifically explored the “impacts of rapid population growth on economic growth, structural change, and urbanization.” These studies resulted in his publication of several books, some utilizing computable general research models to analyze his observations; the project also led to the holding of case studies of Japan and Egypt. Other recent writings of Professor Kelley’s include the titles, “Demography,” “Evolution of Recent Economic-Demographic Modeling: A Synthesis,” and “Population Does Matter: Demography, Growth, and Poverty in the Developing World,” along with over four generations worth of earlier publications that have appeared in books and leading academic journals. Professor Kelley has focused his recent studies on the investigation of nations within Africa, including Kenya, to study fertility, urbanization, and the “evolution of population ideas.”
