Das Scheidungsrisiko von Ehen zwischen Migranten und Einheimischen in Deutschland
In den meisten europäischen Staaten haben Migration und ethnische Vielfalt in der Bevölkerung in den letzten beiden Jahrzehnten zugenommen. Es verwundert nicht, dass auch Ehen zwischen Einheimischen und Zuwanderern häufiger vorkommen, selbst in solchen Staaten, in denen die Barrieren zwischen ethnischen Gruppen bisher eher hoch waren. Die Forschung zu solchen Paardynamiken in Europa ist jedoch noch recht spärlich. [...]
Como mejorar el método de estimación de los flujos migratorios
Conocer el número de personas que entra y sale de los países Europeos es importante para las políticas y para la estabilidad de los sistemas sociales. Sin embargo, los datos son incompletos y, como consecuencia, las previsiones de los flujos migratorios no resultan fiables. Los demógrafos han desarrollado un nuevo método para hacer frente a este problema, mejorando tanto la descripción como la predicción del tamaño de los flujos migratorios por sexo y edad. [...]
Improving Estimation Method of Migration Flows
James Raymer, Joop de Beer and Rob van der Erf have developed a new method for estimating migration flows within all 31 countries in the European Union (EU) and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) from 2002 to 2007. Having the correct data on migration flows is essential if, for example, a country expects that immigration could solve certain problems, such as a shrinking workforce or the financing of pension systems. They are also necessary for politicians developing integration policies.   [...]
Améliorer les méthodes d’estimation des flux migratoires
Connaître le nombre de personnes se déplaçant entre et sortant des pays européens est important pour les politiques et la stabilité des systèmes sociaux en Europe. Cependant, les sources de données sont incomplètes et par conséquent les prévisions des flux migratoires ne sont pas fiables. Les démographes ont mis en place une nouvelle méthode pour aller au-delà de ces données incomplètes afin de décrire et de prévoir avec précision l’ampleur des flux migratoires, même selon l’âge et le sexe. [...]
With the Brexit underway, EU migrants in the UK will soon have to make their own decisions about whether to leave or remain in the country under an alternative legal status to the one they previously held. In an environment of uncertainty, with several concrete and yet uncharted options, EU nationals are largely choosing the latter. Curiously, it’s the uncertainty surrounding their future rights to stay which leads them to having more concrete plans. [...]
Le divorce des parents, le bien-être psychologique et le niveau d’enseignement des Suédois nés entre 1892 et 1991
Au cours du dernier siècle, les taux de divorces et de séparations ont considérablement augmenté dans tous les pays européens. Mais ceci a-t-il la même signification pour les enfants et les adolescents d’aujourd’hui que pour ceux d’il y a un siècle ? Comment le lien entre le divorce des parents d’un côté et l’équilibre des enfants de l’autre a-t-il changé au fil du temps ? [...]
Costs and benefits of an ageing workforce from an European employersˆ perspective
Working longer and retiring later is not only a matter of whether older individuals want to remain active in the labour market as long as possible, but also depends on the employersˆ capacity and willingness to employ and retain older workers. A recent study by Hendrik P. van Dalen, Kne Henkens, Wilma Henderikse, and Joop Schippers analyses whether European employers support later retirement. [...]
Decades of social science research provide plenty of evidence on ethnic and racial discrimination in various areas of society based on ethnographic work and analysis of traditional data sources. Online markets offer a new perspective to study the diverse settings in which ethnic discrimination can occur and provide new channels to test assumptions about why and how members of ethnic or racial groups are being discriminated against. [...]
Return intentions of Moroccan migrants in Europe
Some immigrants stay in their host countries while others decide to return home, but return motives can be remarkably diverse. Migrants may decide to return if they have not been able to improve their lives through migration, a situation that can perhaps be read as a ‘failure’. Others instead may make the same decision only when they have saved and remitted enough to invest in their country of origin, making the return a measure of success. [...]
Leaving the joint-home after separation
Currently a large share of marriages in Europe ends in separation. Marital separation not only causes psychological and emotional stress, but it also affects residential mobility. This occurs because, generally, at least one of the ex-partners leaves the shared dwelling after separation. In this study, Philipp Lersch and Sergi Vidal analyse residential moves to owned and rented dwellings by relationship status and gender, and examine selection processes between ownership and separation in Britain and Germany.
