Let's put demography back into economics: Population pyramids in Excel

Humberto Barreto
2017 Journal of Economic Education  
Hypothetical data are used to explain the pyramid and teach its dynamic properties, then real-world data are used to provide historical context, current demographic snapshots, and a glimpse of the future  ...  After witnessing a population explosion in the last half of the 20 th century, fertility rates are crashing throughout the world.  ...  It is also unrealistic in the sense that fertility rates will not remain constant. They adapt to economic and social conditions and predicting future values is a demographer's biggest challenge.  ...

Towards a reconceptualising of population ageing in emerging markets

Stuart Gietel-Basten, Sergei Scherbov, Warren Sanderson
2017 Vienna Yearbook of Population Research  
Drawing on the literature on 'prospective ageing' (pioneered by Sanderson and Scherbov), we present an alternative set of ageing measurements based on a boundary for 'dependency' drawn from remaining life  ...  Using these measurements, population ageing -at least as defined here -can be seen as a much more manageable prospect for many EMs.  ...  Acknowledgments The authors are grateful to Becky Staddon and Stefanie Andruchowitz for their assistance in preparing this paper and the EMS executive committee and administrators for their support.  ...
