One of the oldest population research centers in Indonesia, CPPS UGM has shown its capabilities and maintains a prominent position in academia.
CPPS UGM was established on 1 April 1973.

To support its various activities (including, but not limited to, training, research, institutional capacity building, and human resources development), CPPS UGM has received continuous financial support from a number of donor institutions. Universitas Gadjah Mada, as the Center’s parent institution, has likewise made important contributions to the Center’s physical facilities, administration, and institutional autonomy.
