Vienna Institute of Demography Working Papers:

A. “Postponement and Recuperation in Cohort Fertility: New Analytical and Projection Methods and their Application,” by Tomas Sobotka, Krystof Zeman, Ron Lesthaeghe, and Tomas Frejka (European Demographic Research Papers 2, 2011, .pdf format, 86p.).

Abstract:

A number of studies have analysed cohort fertility developments in Europe among women born after World War II. These cohorts have seen a shift of childbearing towards later ages and a concomitant decline in fertility level. This broad trend has been studied using the notions of fertility postponement (fertility decline across younger ages) and subsequent recuperation (a compensatory fertility increase at higher reproductive ages). We apply order-specific data and extend and elaborate on two broad approaches to this process: 1) a basic benchmark model extensively used by Tomas Frejka and his colleagues and 2) a relational model proposed by Ron Lesthaeghe (2001). Our work, illustrated with examples for selected European countries and the United States, is based on a simple set of organising rules that aim to be flexible enough to capture subtle trends in the ongoing transformation of cohort fertility. We also illustrate the usefulness of these two approaches for constructing projection scenarios of completed cohort fertility among women of reproductive age.

Using three key indicators of the postponement transition-initial fertility level, absolute fertility decline at younger ages, and the relative degree of fertility ‘recuperation’ at older ages-we demonstrate that each of these components is salient for explaining contemporary differences in cohort fertility. Differential recuperation is especially important, but also parity-specific: whereas all the analysed countries have experienced relatively vigorous recovery of delayed first births, pronounced crosscountry differentials are observed with regard to the recuperation of second and particularly of third and later births. In line with these differentials,
projected values of completed fertility in four European countries vary widely for the cohorts born in the early 1980s, ranging from 1.3 in the lowest scenario for Spain up to 1.9 in the highest scenario for the Czech Republic. Thus, considerable variation in low fertility across the developed countries is likely to continue or even increase further.

B. “A note on the compression of mortality,” by Dalkhat M. Ediev (European Demographic Research Papers 3, 2011, .pdf format, 32p.).

Abstract:

The rapid increase of human longevity has brought up important questions about what implications it may have for the variability of age at death. Earlier works reported evidence of a historical trend of mortality compression. However, the period life table model, which is widely used to address mortality compression, produces an artificially compressed picture of mortality as a built-in feature of the model. We base our study on examining the durations of exposure of birth cohorts (also as compared to period mortality schedules) to selected levels of mortality observed at old age. We also address the problem in a more conventional fashion, by examining the distribution of ages at death (in period tables and cohorts) above and below the mode. Overall, mortality has been significantly
decompressing already since the 1970s. This finding contradicts with most previously reported results. The decompression of old-age mortality may indicate further optimistic prospects of ever-decreasing mortality. Mortality may well not be concentrated in the future within a narrow age interval but more dispersed along age groups, though at ever later ages on average.
