Quelle est l’espérance de vie active des américains ?

Christian Dudel, Mikko Myrskylä
working life of american

Christian Dudel and Mikko Myrskylä study how the length of working life has developed in the U.S. since the early 1990s.

Global population, development aspirations and fallacies
Population mondiale, aspirations de développement et logiques fallacieuses

George Martine
Global population development aspirations and fallacies

The world in which the next 4 billion people will live
Le monde qui accueillera les 4 milliards de personnes à venir

Richard Grossman
4 billion people

I was pleased to read Professor David Lam’s N-IUSSP essay “The world’s next 4 billion people will differ from the previous 4 billion” (Lam 2017). He outlines past, present and projected future population growth. He points out that much of the population growth will occur in Africa, and that a higher proportion will be older,

Fertility in the time of economic crisis
La fécondité aux temps de la crise économique

Chiara Ludovica Comolli

Allez les filles, au travail!

Valeria Solesin
Valeria Solesin

Version française en bas. Two years ago, Neodemos received an article from Valeria SOLESIN, a young student who was then unknown to most demographers, in Italy or elsewhere.
