Demography & the Life Course

Demographic change is a constant force that in the long term causes tectonic shifts in societies, cultures and economies.

Gradual adjustments in birth rates, death rates and migration patterns drive population growth in some regions and ageing in others. These trends change the nature of work, family and community life, urban planning, and public policy making. How can we understand and manage the impacts of processes like population growth and ageing on family structures, differences between rural and urban spaces, and service delivery schemes in housing, health and other areas?
