The Center for Regional Development and Planning (Cedeplar) of the Faculty of Economics of the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG) was founded in 1967 as an office directly connected to the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais. Beginning in 1968 it started a Graduate (Masters) program in Economics. Initially focused on regional economics, the Graduate program in Economics has since then broadened its areas of interest with the inclusion of new fields of research, including the Masters program in Demography. This diversity is characteristic of its many lines of investigation, which include a broad variety of research areas within the two disciplines, Economics and Demography, and urban and regional planning.
