The School of Demography is delighted to announce that the Charles Price Prize in Demography has been jointly awarded to Meg Kingsley and Kim Xu. The Prize recognises the best PhD thesis each year and Meg and Kim’s theses contributed outstanding research in the field.
Meg’s thesis focused on the relationship between work and family conflict and outcomes for children in Australia.

The Prize is named in honour of Dr Charles A Price who for many years was a Professorial Fellow in the Department of Demography at ANU.
