Dr. Pullum's main interests are in human fertility, especially in developing countries, and in the development of quantitative research methods in sociology and demography. He has worked with several large demographic and fertility surveys, often with serious reporting biases, in an effort to infer trends and differentials in fertility. Recent research has focused on identifying social and contextual influences upon the fertility behavior of individual women.
Additional interests include the mathematics of kinship and the indirect estimation of vital rates from historical data such as genealogies.
