The Mindel Sheps award is given every two years for “outstanding contributions to demographic methodology,” and is one of the highest achievements in demography. Lutz received the award for his significant contribution to demographic methodology, developing the theoretical, methodological, and empirical basis for adding educational attainment to age and sex as a third demographic dimension in population dynamics. This pioneering work on human capital resulted in the recent book World Population and Human Capital in the 21st Century .
Lutz accepted the award on 1 April at an awards ceremony at the Population Association of America Annual Meeting in Washington DC.
