Pop digests


PopDigests are short, comprehensive summaries of research results with a link to the original publication (if accessible online). This allows population experts and other interested audiences to be able to easily access information to the latest research results. 

Family moving
Miguel González-Leonardo (International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis), Antonio López-Gay and Joaquín Recaño (Centre d'Estudis Demogràfic and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona), and Niall Newsham and Francisco Rowe (University of Liverpool) analyse changes in internal migration patterns across the urban hierarchy in Spain.
Train going by in a train station
Heiko Rüger, Nico Stawarz, Thomas Skora (Federal Institute for Population Research, BiB) and Brenton M. Wiernik (University of South Florida) use longitudinal data from the Job Mobilities and Family Lives in Europe survey to examine the relationship between the willingness to commute long distances and actual commuting behavior.
Drawing on Swedish register data from 2012-2016, Alyona Artamonova and Brian Gillespie (University of Groningen) address these gaps by examining whether the presence of partners and adult children matters for older adults’ (aged 70-84 years) sibling-focused migration.
