I have today come across this excellent multi-author blog about demography – Demography Matters. For anyone that is concerned about the ageing populations in Europe, what to do about birth rates, family stuctures etc., this should be a worthwhile read.
After having studied demography with Prof. David Coleman at Oxford a few years ago, I’ve always been fascinated by the subject and hence am very happy to see this new blog has been established. Needless to say, Coleman gave me plenty of food for thought as I did not agree with his opinions on many issues, such as his involvement in Migration Watch. Despite this, his tutorials were a pleasure and he managed to stimulate a strong interest in his subject.
