Wachsende Scheidungs- und Trennungsraten prägen die Familienformen in den letzten Dekaden in Deutschland. Um Sozialpolitik vorrausschauend gestalten zu können, ist es wichtig zu verstehen, ob diese Entwicklungen mit wachsenden ökonomischen Risiken für Frauen einhergehen. Zwar liegen mittlerweile zahlreiche Studien vor, die die finanziellen Konsequenzen von Trennung und Scheidung, vor allem für Frauen mit Kindern, aufgezeigt haben. Weitestgehend unerforscht ist jedoch, welche langfristigen Konsequenzen Scheidung und Trennung auf das Altersarmutsrisiko von Frauen haben. [...]
The annual conference 2018 of the German Society for Demography (DGD) is held in collaboration with the Netherlands Demographic Society (NVD). The primary focus of the conference is the relationship between family behavior, fertility and intergenerational relationships. Questions that are to be addressed in this conference are: How did family and fertility behavior change across generations? How do parents’ and children’s fertility behavior, child preferences and partnership dynamics relate to each other? [...]
Handgrip strength is seen as a powerful predictor of mortality across individuals. However, there is no research evidence about the levels and predictive ability of grip strength for mortality in Russian populations compared to the predictive ability of grip strength of other European populations, e.g. in England and Denmark. In England life expectancy levels are close to the EU average, while grip strength levels are slightly above EU average. Denmark has a below-average life expectancy level across EU countries, but it is one of the countries with the highest grip strength scores. [...]
This report examines how the two global mega-trends of population ageing and rising inequalities have been developing and interacting, both within and across generations. Taking a life-course perspective the report shows how inequalities in education, health, employment and earnings compound, resulting in large differences in lifetime earnings across different groups. It suggests a policy agenda to prevent, mitigate and cope with inequalities along the life course drawing on good practices in OECD countries and emerging economies. [...]

Press Release from the UNECE
In a context of continued population ageing, countries in the UNECE region have made strong progress towards promoting active ageing and ensuring inclusive and sustainable societies for all ages. But further efforts are needed to realize the potentials of living longer. These are the main findings of a new report assessing trends and progress in countries’ actions in response to the challenges and potential linked to ageing populations, released today at the opening of the 4th UNECE Ministerial Conference on Ageing, held in Lisbon.

Le vieillissement est un défi global, qui concerne l’ensemble des populations de la planète. Actuellement plus prononcé au Nord, il s’observe déjà dans les pays du Sud où il sera d’ailleurs plus rapide. Vieillir est aussi un défi personnel pour chaque individu, soucieux de maintenir son identité et sa dignité. Pour son 20e colloque et son 40e anniversaire, l’Association Internationale des Démographes de Langue Française vous invite à explorer ces niveaux d’analyse et leurs articulations, à travers quatre axes : [...]
