The D2CR project (Depopulation and Depopulation in the Municipalities of the Province of Ciudad Real) seeks to help combat the demographic problem in the province of Ciudad Real more effectively. It is based on a key idea that, the Nobel Prize of Economy Joseph Stiglitz, summarized in a clear way: "You can´t improve what you can´t measure". In this line, in D2CR several tools are developed and made available to the society in order to know adequately the problem, a necessary step to take more effective decisions. The results included in this website reflect the joint work of experts in demography and computer science, showing the potential to create synergies between these disciplines, which are a priori so distant. D2CR serves to better face the demographic problem avoiding generalizations, by definition incorrect, since the situation is quite different in some territories and in others, also within the province of Ciudad Real. It also provides the key indicators to analyze the situation, that is, it tells us what to measure and how to measure it.
D2CR is funded by the Provincial Council of Ciudad Real and is carried out by a team of research professors from the University of Castilla-La Mancha, belonging to the departments of Information Technologies and Systems, and Geography and Land Management. The project is the continuation and extension of previous work dedicated to studying the phenomenon of depopulation in the province of Ciudad Real. Its main objective is to facilitate the study, analysis and decision making about the demographic problem in the province of Ciudad Real. To this end, the project´s website (https://d2cr.uclm.es) includes options that seek to facilitate any person, without special technical knowledge, to know in detail the population reality of the province and its municipalities and areas. Citizens, media, researchers of the territory and its population and socioeconomic situation, heads of social organizations or local and provincial authorities are the potential users of the results of the D2CR project.
