Population and migration : understanding the numbers /

by Australia. Productivity Commission.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australia. Productivity Commission 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2010 Bibliography : p. 83-92Summary: Some useful attempts have been made to make population-related statistics more accessible to the general public. The ABS and the Department of Immigration and Citizenship ? the organisations responsible for collecting the data ? produce detailed supporting publications explaining how the data are collected and what the statistics mean. Prominent demographic researchers, such as Peter McDonald, Graeme Hugo, Bob Birrell and others, have written papers examining particular aspects of population and migration statistics. The aim of this paper is to ?demystify? population-related statistics further and to promote a clearer understanding of what has been happening. The paper consolidates and interprets statistical evidence from various sources, and seeks to shed light on issues that appear to have been overlooked. It provides a basic context for, and general explanations of, the key population-related issues of fertility and mortality, overseas migration, geographical distribution and population projections.Availability: (1)

The economic analysis of population aging : implications for policy making /

by Herrmann, Micheal | World demographic and ageing forum.

Publisher: St Gallen, Switzerland World Demographic and Ageing Forum 2011Description: PDF.Other title: The WDA-HSG Series on Demographic Issues. Discussion paper ;.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 41-44Summary: Population aging worries many. Will population aging negatively affect economic output and lead to deflation? Can countries afford to cater for older populations? Can they prevent old-age poverty? Can they pay adequate pensions? Can they address the challenge of population aging by postponing the retirement age? Should they seek to counteract population aging through accelerated immigration and/ or should they focus on maintaining fertility rates above replacement levels? Although some answers to these questions are context-specific, this paper argues that the threat of population aging is overstated. It is hyped by media and too often based on partial analysis. A macroeconomic analysis provides a more adequate and less threatening picture of population aging than the microeconomic analysis that underlies most studies on this subject matter. The developed economies that already have a large share of older persons are well positioned to shoulder the economic implications of further population aging, and rapidly developing economies, which see an accelerated rate of population aging, are too. Many countries have the economic conditions to address population aging, but many lack the necessary resolve to implement the required policies. Popular policy responses to population aging are building up to a major wave of income redistribution, following the globalization of finance and the current responses to the global economic crisis.Availability: (1)
