T his issue of POPNET highlights selected ongoing research activities of the Centre of Expertise on Population and Migration (CEPAM), which is jointly run by IIASA and JRC. These activities serve as background for the definition of alternative migration scenarios corresponding to possible alternative migration policies, and the assessment of their implications for receiving and sending societies. Going beyond the conventional demographic focus on age and sex, it applies a multi-dimensional…

Forecasting societies' adaptive capacities through a demographic metabolism model

It is proposed that the concept of demographic metabolism and the associated methods of multi-dimensional population projections provide an effective analytical toolbox to forecast important aspects of societal change that affect adaptive capacity.

A New Perspective on Patterns of Aging in Europe by Education and Gender

It is found that, within countries, the patterns of aging of men and women with high education are comparatively similar to one another, but that the pattern of aging are quite dissimilar for men andWomen in the low education group.

The paper shows convincingly that the answers to how different population scenarios change the rationale for mitigation policies and vice versa depend on a rather abstract philosophical choice: namely, whether the goal is to maximize total utility (TU) or average utility (AU).

An Easily Understood and Intergenerationally Equitable Normal Pension Age

Pension arrangements are in the process of changing in most OECD countries. These changes often include changes in normal pension ages. Several rationales are commonly given for changes in normal

The characteristics approach to the measurement of population aging

The “characteristics approach” set out in this article encompasses multiple features of population aging, yielding new measures that can better inform both demographic analysis and public policy debate.

Are We Overly Dependent on Conventional Dependency Ratios

The dependency ratio and its components have had a long and productive life. Here we show that they are no longer the most accurate way of measuring important aspects of population aging. We present

Remeasuring Aging

New forecasts based on disability status and conventional measures of aging exhibit a slower pace of aging compared with the conventional ones, as life expectancies increase and people remain healthy longer.
