William Murray

Graduate Student

Masters in Professional Studies in Applied Demography



  1. B.S. in Finance, York College of Pennsylvania


Wil Murray's interest in demography began to sprout after spending a summer interning for local non-profits focused on the business revitalization of downtown York, Pennsylvania. Those experiences led him to research gentrification for an undergraduate seminar. He became interested in how economic development effects native residents of a city, the effects of job growth on attracting new migrants, and what those shifts meant for the region as a whole.

That research led to more questions about the relationship/association between populations and their economies.
