The AISP Population Report 2021 aims to analyze demographic trends of the Italian population over the last twenty years, situating the Italian dynamics within the larger European context. The main demographic dimensions that are investigated in the present volumes are: family, fertility, transition to adulthood, migration, health and mortality (including recent trends linked to the current COVID-19 pandemic). Moreover, the Report investigates dynamics of inequality in education and across geographical areas.
The other relevant goal of the volume is to identify potential demographic scenarios for the future of the Italian population, highlighting their main challenges. Next to this, a rigorous analysis of possible policy options has been conducted, referring to international “best practices”, and developing causal evidence for the evaluations of these policies.
