Russian Demographic Data Sheet 2016

The Russian Demographic Datasheet 2016 shows key demographic data, population trends and projections until 2035. It covers fertility, mortality, migration, population structure including population ageing and their changes. The datasheet combines data for the national level, all regions and districts, and features maps, population pyramids, rankings, graphs and a glossary. It pays special attention to the importance of alternative indicators of population ageing for the current and future population changes across Russia. All information is provided in both languages, Russian and English.

European and Asian Demographic Data Sheets

By applying the multi-state model of population dynamics, including differential fertility, mortality and migration rates, the Wittgenstein Centre has produced projections of the European and Asian population by age, sex and four levels of educational attainment. The results are presented with the European Demographic Data Sheets 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014, 2016 and the Asian Demographic and Human Capital Data Sheet 2008 and 2012.

Wittgenstein Centre Data Explorer Version 1.2

Designed using R+Shiny, the Data Explorer provides data, projection assumptions, back-projections, and results on the population of all world countries (195) by age, sex, and education for alternative scenarios from 2010 to 2060 with extensions to 2100, based on a half-dozen scenarios. Other indicators related to fertility, mortality, and migration are also available.

Global Human Capital Data Sheet 2015

The Global Human Capital Data Sheet 2015 presents new population projections by age, sex, and level of educational attainment for the world, world regions, and 195 individual countries (24 countries with limited education data) with a time horizon to 2060. 

The Wittgenstein Centre provides a new visualization tool for presenting population projections by age, sex, and level of educational attainment for the world with a time horizon to 2060. More

Geburtenbarometer: Monitoring of Fertility in Austria

Geburtenbarometer Austria and Geburtenbarometer Vienna (launched in May 2010) are interconnected projects of the Vienna Institute of Demography, aiming to provide continuous monitoring of period fertility rates in Austria and in Vienna. The Geburtenbarometer provides quarterly and annual reports and regularly updated datasets.

Household surveys after the 2012 Indian Ocean Earthquake in Phang Nga (Thailand)

This dataset is based on a survey of households located in tsunami high-risk areas in Phang Nga province. The purpose of the survey is to investigate household responses to the Indian Ocean Earthquakes (M8.6) on 11 April 2012. The survey was conducted by the College of Population Studies, Chulalongkorn University between 17 April - 13 May 2012.

Human Fertility Database

The Human Fertility Database (HFD) is a joint project of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) in Rostock, Germany and the Vienna Institute of Demography (VID) in Vienna, Austria, based at MPIDR. We seek to provide free and user-friendly access to detailed and high-quality data on period and cohort fertility and thus to facilitate research on changes and inter-country differences in fertility in the past and in the modern era. The HFD is entirely based on official vital statistics and places a great emphasis on data checking and documentation and on warranting data comparability across time and countries by means of uniform methodology. Read more

Human Fertility Collection

The Human Fertility Collection (HFC) is a joint project of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) in Germany and the Vienna Institute of Demography (VID) in Austria. The HFC has been designed to supplement the Human Fertility Database (HFD) and to incorporate a variety of international fertility data that are valuable for fertility research but do not meet all quality standards of the HFD.

Cohort Fertility and Education (CFE) Database

The Cohort Fertility and Education (CFE) database provides high-quality data on completed cohort fertility and parity distribution by level of education. The data come from censuses and large sample surveys, and cover several (mostly European) countries, i.e. countries with generally high levels of education and relatively low fertility. As the database is in a constant progress, data from new countries and sources are being regularly added.

IV future.monitor

The future.monitor generates scientifically sound facts about demographic and economic developments in Austria. Different scenarios present the effects of population development on future everyday life (public services, siting), and show what has to be done to maintain the economic performance and the associated social security systems.

Future.monitor is a cooperation between the Austrian Federation of Industry (IV), the Austrian Red Cross, and the University of Economics, supported by the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis.

National Transfer Accounts

The goal of the National Transfer Accounts (NTA) project is to improve our understanding of the generational economy. How does population growth and changing age structure influence economic growth, gender and generational equity, public finances, and other important features of the macroeconomy? As part of the NTA project, research teams in more than 40 countries are constructing accounts, measuring how people at each age produce, consume, and share resources, and save for their future. The accounts are designed to complement the UN System of National Accounts, population data, and other important economic and demographic indicators.

SSP Database Version 1.0

The SSP database aims at the documentation of quantitative projections of the so-called Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs) and related Integrated Assessment scenarios. The SSPs are part of a new framework that the climate change research community has adopted to facilitate the integrated analysis of future climate impacts, vulnerabilities, adaptation, and mitigation. Information about the scenario process and the SSP framework can be found in Moss et al. (2010)van Vuuren et al. (2014) and O‘Neil et al. (2014) and Kriegler et al. (2014). The framework is built around a matrix that combines climate forcing on one axis (as represented by the Representative Concentration Pathways: van Vuuren et al, 2011 ) and socio-economic conditions on the other. Together, these two axes describe situations in which mitigation, adaptation and residual climate damage can be evaluated.

Website: Journey of your life

Samir KC together with colleagues from the World Bank have developed an interactive tool to help individuals see their place in the world population, http://population.io/. The website reflects the most up to estimates of life expectancy for each country as well as for the world as a whole, but limited to three factors: existing age, gender and country of birth/residence. Read more about it in the IIASA blog Journey of your life: Demography for the demos.

WIREL Database

WIREL was a research project (funded by the Vienna Science and Technology Fund) that studied different demographic and religious forces that have shaped Vienna’s population composition throughout the past as well as the implications that such forces hold for the present and the future.
