Center for Statistics and Social Sciences [University of Washington] Working Paper: “Probabilistic Projections of the Total Fertility Rate for All Countries,” by Leontine Alkema, Adrian E. Raftery , Patrick Gerland, Samuel J. Clark, Francois Pelletier, and Thomas Buettner (Working Paper No. 97, January 2010, .pdf format, 60p.).

Abstract:

We describe a Bayesian projection model to produce country-specific projections of the total fertility rate (TFR) for all countries. It decomposes the evolution of TFR in three phases: pre-transition high fertility, the fertility transition, and post-transition low fertility. The model for the fertility decline builds on the United Nations Population Division’s current deterministic projection methodology, which assumes that fertility will eventually fall below replacement level. It models the decline in TFR as the sum of two logistic functions that depend on the current TFR level, and a random term. A Bayesian hierarchical model is used to project future TFR based on both the country’s TFR history and the pattern of all countries. It is estimated from United Nations estimates of past TFR in all countries using a Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithm. The post-transition low fertility phase is modeled using an autoregressive model, in which long-term TFR projections converge toward and oscillate around replacement level. The method is evaluated using out-of-sample projections for the period since 1980 and the period since 1995, and is found to be well calibrated.

University of Texas at Austin Population Research Center EU Summer Program: “The Population Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin, in collaboration with the Department of Sociology, is hosting the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program in Immigration, Geography, and Race/Ethnicity in the U.S. for the summer of 2010. This eight-week summer program, which is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (but also with significant contributions from the UT Population Research Center, Department of Sociology, Graduate School and College of Liberal Arts), offers eight very selective upper-division undergraduate students from both UT-Austin and from around the country the opportunity to study social demography through course work and a mentored research experience with senior PRC graduate students. The program pays for tuition, room and board, and computer expenses. REU students also receive a $4,000 stipend for participation in the program, which allows the selected students to fully concentrate on their REU experience over the 2-month program. Students register for a 3-hour summer course in during the first half of the summer, then dedicate the second half of the summer to their own projects in collaboration with their graduate student mentor and under the overall guidance of the faculty co-directors, Nestor Rodriguez and Rebecca Torres. Student papers are then presented at the fall meeting of the Southern Demographic Association.  Former students from the REU program are now on the faculties of Johns Hopkins University, Rice University, Pennsylvania State University, University of Texas at Austin, University of Kansas, University of Denver, and more, and currently in social science graduate programs at the Universities of Wisconsin, Chicago, North Carolina, Texas, Pennsylvania, Indiana, California at Los Angeles, and California at Santa Cruz, as well as Stanford University, Texas A&M University, Pennsylvania State University, and more.  This program is specifically geared toward students with junior standing who are seriously thinking about attending graduate school in the social sciences and, particularly, in sociology, demography, or geography.

The 2010 summer REU Program application deadline is February 28th, 2010.” For more information see:

American Economics Association Presidential Address: “Price indexes, inequality, and the measurement of world poverty,” by Angus Deaton (January 2010, .pdf format, 60p.).

Abstract:

I discuss the measurement of world poverty and inequality, with particular attention to the role of PPP price indexes from the International Comparison Project. Global inequality increased with the latest revision of the ICP, and this reduced the global poverty line relative to the US dollar. The recent large increase of nearly half a billion globally poor people came from an inappropriate updating of the global poverty line, not from the ICP revisions. Even so, PPP comparisons between widely different countries rest on weak theoretical and foundations. I argue for wider use of self-reports from international monitoring surveys, and for a global poverty line that is truly denominated in US dollars.
