"Migration is one of the worst predictable elements of the puzzle". An interview with Jakub Bijak (University of Southampton), winner of the Allianz European Demographer Award 2015. Questions: 1.

I often hear that international migrants, once they have citizenship rights, bring their whole extended family into the country – is that really common? [...]

Is the situation different when couples only move to another city or region but stay in the same country? 3. What other factors can affect the gender balance in a couple when a family changes their place of residence? [...]

I often worry about the security of my pension and how the younger generations will cope with the financial burdens awaiting them because of the increasing number of older people. Can research tell us how these imbalances will really develop? 2. Pensions and healthcare are big draws on public finances, but older people also complete a lot of unpaid work. Is this accounted for in the statistics at all? [...]
