The Wittgenstein Centre aspires to be a world leader in the advancement of demographic methods and their application to the analysis of human capital and population dynamics. In assessing the effects of these forces on long-term human well-being, we combine scientific excellence in a multidisciplinary context with relevance to a global audience. It is a collaboration among the Vienna Institute of Demography of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (OeAW), the World Population Program of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and the Department of Demography (University of Vienna).
