In the Netherlands, between 1400 and 2200 deaths in the summer of 2003 may have been heat-related. The fact that the maximum temperatures were lower than in some other European countries, and occurred in less heavily populated areas, may have led to mortality figures that were relatively less dramatic. The temporarily increased death rates are only partly(More)

The author discusses two means of accounting for uncertainty in population forecasting. The first method makes assumptions about fertility, mortality, and migration for a limited period of time. The second covers confidence intervals between low, medium, and high variants. The geographical scope is worldwide, with some assumptions based on data for the(More)
BACKGROUND Evidence has been synthesized to determine hindering and facilitating factors associated with the work participation of adults with developmental dyslexia (DD), classified according to the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). METHODS A systematic literature review has been performed. Two search strings were(More)
This article presents the results of Eurostat's latest population projections for the 15 countries of the European Union. Under the Eurostat baseline scenario, the EU population will continue to grow slowly until around the year 2025 before starting to decline. The number of young people will continue to fall, while the number of older people will increase.(More)
"Three scenarios of future mortality trends are presented for all countries of the European Economic Area. The high scenario assumes a considerable decline in mortality rates. Consequently life expectancy at birth will continue to increase at about the same rate as during the last decades.... In the low scenario only a small decline in death rates is(More)
"On the basis of assumptions on the probability distribution of future fertility, life expectancy and net migration, the probability distribution of the future size and age structure of the population [of the Netherlands] can be calculated.... The calculations are based on three main assumptions.... On the basis of these assumptions it can be calculated(More)
"This article presents new population scenarios for the 18 countries of the European Economic Area (EEA) for the period 1995-2050. In most of these countries population size will continue to grow for some two to three decades. A major exception is Italy, which will see its population size decline rather sharply. According to the baseline scenario total(More)

"The medium variant of the new Netherlands population forecasts for the period 1998-2050 projects that population size will increase to a maximum of 17.4 million around 2035.... In the new population forecasts population growth is higher due to higher numbers of births and lower numbers of deaths. Even though net migration will be lower than in the previous(More)
The authors examine ways currently under consideration to link data on the resident population and on immigrants in the Netherlands. "An important development is the introduction of a new computerized population registration system in the near future. One of the features in the new system is that each inhabitant will be identified by a unique(More)
