Outside age and gender, are there any other factors impacting on population heterogeneity in a country?

Basing from a series of publications and modeling studies conducted by Dr. Samir K.C. and colleagues at the Asian Demographic Research Institute (ADRI) in Shanghai University, the roles played by education and location have been found out as significant as well.

On April 12, 2018, 10 a.m., at the UP Population Institute (UPPI) Seminar Room, Dr. Samir K.C. will be presenting the outputs of their research with his lecture entitled “Understanding population heterogeneity in demographic and human capital dynamics: How does population heterogeneity matter for the future population outlook?”. He will present a case study on India to show how and why education and place of residence significantly impact on population size and structure.

This lecture is part of the ongoing multi-country project on “Modeling Human Capital Formation” of the Wittgenstein Centre for Demography and Global Human Capital (IIASA, VID/ÖAW, WU) and International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), World Population Program in Laxenburg, Austria led by Dr. Samir K.C. where the UPPI is part of.

In April 2017, a team from the UPPI led by Dr. Grace T. Cruz took part in the project’s inception workshop at the ADRI in Shanghai, China which involved tutorials on the modeling and projection of sub-national population trends. Recently, in January 2018, the team attended a follow-up activity, again, in Shanghai.
