A. "Cohort birth order, parity progression ratio and parity distribution trends in developed countries," by Tomas Frejka and Jean-Paul Sardon (WP-2006-045, November 2006, .pdf format, p.).

Abstract:

This paper is the latest in a series initiated in 1999 which investigates childbearing in low fertility countries from a cohort perspective. Principal conclusions: Major changes in childbearing patterns are continuously taking place in almost all countries. Large families with four and more children have all but disappeared. Almost everywhere the two-child family becamedominant. Proportions of childless women and of one-child families were increasing among recent cohorts. Childbearing postponement is a virtually universal process in contemporary low-fertility populations. In Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries, starting with the 1960s cohorts, changes in age patterns of childbearing have been profound which justifies labeling these as an historic transformation. One indisputable characteristic is that young women are bearing considerably fewer children compared to older cohorts. In particular, the proportions of women having second births in most CEE countries were declining rapidly and these proportions were lower than in western countries. Postponement of childbearing might be nearing cessation in some western countries.

B. "The 'LifeCourse' model, a competing risk cohort microsimulation model: source code and basic concepts of the generic microsimulation programming language Modgen," by Martin Spielauer (WP-2006-046, November 2006, .pdf format, p.).

This paper documents the source code of "LifeCourse", a simple competing risk microsimulation model initially developed alongside a study on fertility decline in Bulgaria and Russia. "LifeCourse" is programmed in the generic microsimulation language Modgen developed at Statistics Canada. In the context of this contribution, the model is introduced step by step as template for other microsimulation applications and as training tool for demographic microsimulation using Modgen.

C. "Family, obligations, and migration: the role of kinship in Cameroon," by Annett Fleischer (WP-2006-047, November 2006, .pdf format, 31p.).

The aim of this paper is to investigate the influence of family and kin networks on the individual decision to migrate. The study is based on qualitative ethnographic data collected during field research in Cameroon and shows the considerable impact of the extended family on the migrant's decision to leave Cameroon for Germany. Migrants do not necessarily set out to pursue individual goals. They are often delegated to leave by authority figures in their extended family. The individual is part of an informal reciprocal system of exchange, which is based on trust, has social consequences, and includes duties and responsibilities for both sides.

Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER) [University of Essex, Colchester, UK]: "The Highest Fertility in Europe - for how long? The analysis of fertility change in Albania based on Individual Data," by Arjan Gjonca, Arnstein Aassve, and Letizia Mencarini (ISER Working Paper 2006-56, November 2006, .pdf format, 27p.).

Abstract:

Albania's demographic changes have sparked considerable interest in recent years. Much of this attention has arisen due to a general lack of knowledge and unexpected demographic behaviour of the Albanian populations. The country has experienced a high level of life expectancy and relatively high levels of fertility in the recent years. While previous research gives some answers to developing trends and patterns of mortality and fertility change, not much is known about the demographic behaviour of Albanians. Though Falkingham and Gjonca (2001), using census data, provide useful insights into the fertility transition in Albania from 1950 to 1990, very little is known about fertility behaviour neither during the communist period nor during the nineties. From being one of the most isolated countries of the world, Albania has embarked on a remarkable transition which involves dramatic political and economic change. The new and emerging situation is bound to have profound impact on society and the behaviour of individuals within it. Using the 2002 Albanian Living Standard and Measurement Survey (ALSMS) we analyse fertility behaviour in terms of the quantum and tempo. Using survival analysis techniques the results suggest that the reduction of fertility was mainly due to the improvements in the social agenda, with particular emphasis on female education, as well as the improvement in child mortality. The results also reveal that 1990s saw some strong period effects which mainly affected the higher parities. The persistence of traditional norms and values continue to affect family formation in Albania, while the changes in the social and economic circumstances determine the outcome of childbearing.
