IIASA researchers from the World Population Program partner in a new European Union funded project that will have a focus on migration in Europe. More
The percentage of the world’s population that is above or below the ‘replacement level of fertility’ has long been used as a measure of demographic development. A new study revisited how this metric is calculated and how useful it really is in terms of informing policy decisions. More
IIASA’s research on population aging is increasingly being accepted and used. It brings 21st century tools to the study of 21st century population aging. More

Governance in climate vulnerable countries will take decades to improve, substantially impeding the ability of nations to adapt to climate change and affecting billions of people globally, according to new research published in Nature Sustainability. More
Available research on the impact of a person’s socioeconomic status during childhood suggests that the circumstances one grows up in matter a great deal for adult health. The results of a new IIASA study supports the notion of a “long arm of childhood conditions” that remains invisible beyond mid-life but can affect health satisfaction later in life. More
Former IIASA Young Scientist Summer Program student Mr. Moradhvaj and his IIASA co-authors received the best paper award at the Second Asian Population Forum in Shanghai. More
Population aging projections across the US show a divide between cities and rural areas, which could lead to pockets of vulnerability to climate change. More
When researchers or policymakers ask health related questions – which they do a lot – they often rely on self-reported rather than tested health data. IIASA researchers looked into how reliable this type of data is for research and found that, depending on country or age, self-reported data could be highly biased. More
In recognition of his knowledge and expertise in Population Studies and the outstanding contribution he has made in the field, Chulalongkorn University honors Sergei Scherbov with a Doctoral Degree in Liberal Arts (Honoris Causa). More
The United Nations launched a new Global Sustainable Development Report that is based on the work of 15 independent scientists, among them IIASA World Population Program Director Wolfgang Lutz. More
Despite the fact that people in sub-Saharan Africa are now living longer than they did two decades ago, their average life expectancy remains below that of the rest of the world population. A new study looked into the importance of various causes of death in Zambia and how eliminating the most prominent of these would impact life expectancy in the country. More
