In: Acta demographica 1992, edited by Gunter Buttler, Gerhard Heilig, and Gerhard Schmitt-Rink. 1992. 237-52 pp. Physica-Verlag: Heidelberg, Germany. In Eng. with sum. in Ger.
"This paper reports on a study in which the countries of the world are classified according to their stage of development. The study demonstrates that a multivariate (empirical) description of the stage of development of countries allows the use of more recent methods of cluster-analysis (for mixed data) to classify countries with regard to their position in the process of development. It attempts to identify and to explain quantitatively and multivariately the characteristics (variables) of least and less developed, of developing and developed countries." The results, which group countries into five developmental levels, are included.

"Based on the empirical analysis of an Indonesian case study, this article poses a challenge to Oshima's generalizations concerning the pattern of demographic and economic transition. In addition, it demonstrates that Indonesia has been able to attain a stage of demographic transition with only a lower level of economic development than that experienced by present-day developed countries during their transition to low fertility and mortality regimes. Hence, this faster demographic transition can be fruitfully exploited to stimulate even more rapid economic progress in Indonesia. The likely impact of demographic changes on the future of the Indonesian economy is also examined."

"This paper represents a preliminary attempt to examine the successes and failures of the Indian economy in integrating population issues with development planning and what were, or would be, the consequences of rapid population growth for the alleviation of poverty in the country. The first section of the paper discusses the momentum of population growth since independence and examines the prospects of reducing its growth rate in future. This section analyses the crucial role of social and human development in influencing fertility rates and shows how little emphasis was placed on promoting these objectives in Indian planning. The second section is devoted to a detailed examination of the relationship between foodgrains production and population growth....The third and final section presents a broad analysis of a few important questions relating to labour market adjustments in response to population growth."

"This paper will deal with the demographic effects of introduced technological change in Small Island economies....We will examine the Demographic Transition Theory using South Pacific Island economies as case studies. That two phases of technological change--extensive and intensive--with their varying demand for 'quantity' labour first followed by 'quality' labour have profound effects on the demographic transition and capitalist transformation of an economy will be discussed using the experience of developed capitalist economies. The study [will discuss] the problems of the smallness of these economies in terms of population size and a lack of sufficient labour resources including human capital to accommodate economically the injection of sophisticated capital and investment from overseas. This study will also investigate the demographic and development effects of emigration, remittances and foreign aid to these economies."

The author examines reasons why Argentina has declined from being one of the richest countries in the world at the beginning of the twentieth century to its current status of relative underdevelopment. "The quantitative records of income growth and accumulation date the onset of the retardation to around the time of the Great War, and patterns of aggregate saving and foreign borrowing show that scarcity of investable resources significantly frustrated interwar development. A demographic model of national saving demonstrates that the burdens of rapid population growth and substantial immigration depressed Argentine saving, contributing significantly to the demise of the Belle Epoque following the wartime collapse of international financial markets."

"Demographic projections to the year 2050 for advanced industrial nations, implying low or negative population growth and a sharp rise in old age dependency, have created concerns about the long-term economic outlook in these countries. An analysis of these projections in the light of the demographic and economic experience of the past century raises doubt about these concerns. There is little empirical evidence that declining population growth has slowed the rate of economic growth. Although the burden of aged dependents will reach a new high, the projected total dependency rate is not out of line with prior experience. Thus, the ability of the working population to shoulder the burden of higher taxes to support programs for older dependents will be greater because of reduced needs to support younger dependents. This conclusion holds for a number of variant projections, the only clear exception being one that implies a mortality revolution at older ages."

The author reexamines the relationships among demographic aging, the dependency burden, and intergenerational conflict from a post-Keynesian perspective, in which unemployment and excess capacity are normal to the functioning of capitalist economies, and resources are not generally fully utilized. He "argues that the Keynesian process of national income determination precludes any immediate relationship between population ageing and the 'burden' imposed on income recipients. Below full employment, a rising dependency ratio is not guaranteed to reduce the expenditure share of income recipients or raise their tax rates. An exclusive emphasis on intergenerational conflict can give a misleading impression of the consequences of population ageing." The focus is on developed countries.

The effect of the global economic depression of the 1930s on demographic processes in New Zealand is explored. The author concludes that "changes in demographic patterns were essentially slight and of short duration....Moreover, comparison with both earlier and later demographic fluctuations, and with the experience of other countries, does not reveal any consistent relationship between economic and demographic change. Citing demographic change as evidence of economic shock in New Zealand in the 1930s does not seem to be justified."

The focus is on the extent to which demographic factors contribute to deforestation or not....The paper concludes with some suggestions for research and policy implications, focussing on population variables."

Three case studies designed to illustrate the links among poverty, internal migration, and environmental change in rural areas of developing countries are presented. The examples selected concern migration between highland and lowland areas in Latin America, transmigration in Indonesia, and desertification in the Sudan. The author concludes that there are strong connections between environmental degradation and the migration of poor people, with regard to both the causes and consequences of their movement.

"This study presents calculations that quantify the effects of population growth and other determinants of future emission rates of carbon dioxide....An examination of the relative contributions of emissions from different world regions indicates that the developed countries have been the primary source of carbon dioxide in the past, but rapid population and economic growth in the developing world is expected to raise its emission rate above that of the industrialized countries during most of the twenty-first century. Stabilization of emissions from the developed world alone will therefore result in only a modest decline in the projected temperature rise over the next century; efforts to curb greenhouse gas production in the developing countries will also be necessary to limit global warming."

This is a report by a team of researchers who examined the evidence for the prediction that the collision between a growing world population and increasing environmental degradation will lead to civil and international strife. The authors conclude that "scarcities of renewable resources are already contributing to violent conflicts in many parts of the developing world. These conflicts may foreshadow a surge of similar violence in coming decades, particularly in poor countries where shortages of water, forests and, especially, fertile land, coupled with rapidly expanding populations, already cause great hardship."

This study is an update on a project examining relationships among population growth, natural resources, and the environment that resulted in the 1971 publication "The limits to growth". Using the computer model World3, the authors apply more recent data to analyze the long-term implications of current trends. They conclude that "human use of many essential resources and generation of many kinds of pollutants have already surpassed rates that are physically sustainable. Without significant reductions in material and energy flows, there will be in the coming decades an uncontrolled decline in per capita food output, energy use, and industrial production. This decline is not inevitable. To avoid it two changes are necessary. The first is a comprehensive revision of policies and practices that perpetuate growth in material consumption and in population. The second is a rapid, drastic increase in the efficiency with which materials and energy are used."

"This article argues that future demographic shifts will alter the supply of older workers and the demand for their services. Research conducted by the authors, shows that a significant percentage of older workers not currently working would like to work and that older workers can be as cost effective and capable as younger workers. Recommendations for facilitating the greater employment of older workers conclude the article." The geographical focus is on the United States.

The authors examine female labor force participation in Britain dating from the Industrial Revolution. They compare women's paid work to men's, examine women's role in the economy, and describe the impacts on family earnings, fertility, and motherhood. They conclude that "the diverse ways in which women combine their paid and unpaid duties create ceilings on the advance of their economic independence, and therefore also limit the extent to which the female labour market can be held responsible for changes in the family....As secondary earners of their families in the secondary sector of the labour market, most women's economic status remains determined by their domestic duties, and reflects a double role. Unless the terms upon which the two activities can be combined improve, advances of female social status or independence will remain limited."

In Ita. with sum. in Eng; Fre.
Changes in the Italian labor force over the period 1978-1987 are analyzed. The most significant change involved an increase in the size of the work force, particularly in the south, and an increase in the proportion of women in the labor supply. However, the increase in employment opportunities has not kept pace with the increase in the number of people seeking work, resulting in high levels of unemployment, particularly among the young and those over 50.

"The demographic changes currently underway in the United States have been widely anticipated and discussed by scholars and practitioners, but little is known about what impacts, if any, have already been experienced by employers. This article reports on a field study that asked managers in large U.S. corporations to describe how and to what extent demographic changes have affected their businesses. Changing work force demographics were interpreted by managers as having two distinct components: a reduction in the growth rate and quality of potential employees, and increased gender, ethnic, and age diversity."

In Dut. with sum. in Eng.
Data for the Netherlands and for the Flemish region of Belgium are analyzed and compared. The authors assess "the relation between women's labour market participation and the birth of first and consecutive children....It is concluded that a large majority of women participates in the labour market before the birth of their first child. After the birth of this first child a vast majority of female workers drops out of the labour market....Compared with Flemish women the participation rate of Dutch women is higher before the birth of a first child, but lower during every next stage of the family formation process. This leads to the conclusion that the birth of a (first) child has substantially more serious consequences for women in the Netherlands than for women in Flanders."

The effect of the formation of the European Community (EC) on illegal migration and labor force participation is examined. "The free movement of people and goods in the [EC] facilitates new types of illicit work, increasing...the already large economic disparities in some areas." The author concludes that the relative wealth of the EC attracts labor migrants whose need to work exacerbates the problem.

"This is a survey of applied econometric research on the effects of children on female labor supply. Reasons for interest in the topic, and a basic model and terminology, are reviewed. Concerns are raised about the possible endogeneity of child status variables, and about the instrumental variables approach for dealing with this problem. Alternative ways of conceptualizing and estimating child status effects are considered, together with selected empirical evidence. Relevant developments from the household demand literature are summarized. Basic issues of model choice are also discussed." Comments are included by Richard Blundell (pp. 73-7), Martin Browning and Martin Dooley (pp. 79-83), N. Soren Blomquist (pp. 85-7), and Francois Laisney (pp. 89-91), as well as a reply from the authors (pp. 93-6).

"In this paper, I will give a short overview of the situation of working women in the Netherlands. My presentation falls into three parts. The first part is empirical...[and] will compare the rate and the structure of female labour force participation in the Netherlands with the rate and the structure of female labour force participation in West Germany, thereby using a somewhat historical perspective. The second part of my presentation is more theoretical....I will try to find out if there is anything in the nature of the Dutch or German welfare state which can explain the marked differences in female employment between these two countries. The third part will deal with policy matters. I will give a short overview of the current Dutch debate with regard to female employment and I will give some general information about Dutch government policy in this respect."
