Institute of Behavioral Science [University of Colorado] Working Paper: “Spatially and Temporally Varying Associations between Outmigration and Natural Resource Availability in Resource-Dependent Rural Communities: A Modeling Framework,” by Stefan Leyk, Galen J. Maclaurin, Lori M. Hunter, Raphael Nawrotzki, Wayne Twine, Mark Collinson, and Barend Erasmus (POP 2012-01, January 2012, .pdf format, 28p.).


Migration-environment models tend to be aspatial within chosen study regions, although associations between outmigration and environmental explanatory variables likely vary across the study space. This research extends current approaches by developing migration models considering spatial non-stationarity and temporal variation – through examination of the migration-environment association at nested spatial scales (i.e. global, village, and subvillage) within a study site. Demographic survey data from rural South Africa, combined with indicators of natural resource availability from satellite imagery, are employed in a nested modeling approach that brings out distinct patterns of spatial variation in model associations at finer scales. Given recent heightened public and policy concern with the human migratory implications of climate change, we argue that consideration of spatial variability adds important nuance to scientific understanding of the migration-environment association.

Program on the Global Demography of Aging [Harvard University] Working Paper: “Declining fertility and economic well-being: do education and health ride to the rescue?” by Klaus Prettner, David E. Bloom, and Holger Strulik (PGDA Working Paper No. 84, January 2012, .pdf format, 29p.).


It is widely argued that declining fertility slows the pace of economic growth through its negative effect on labor supply. There are, however, theoretical arguments suggesting that the effect of falling fertility on effective labor supply can be o set by the associated behavioral changes. We formalize these arguments by setting forth a dynamic consumer optimization model that incorporates endogenous fertility as well as endogenous educational and health investments. The model shows that a fertility decline induces higher education and health investments that are able to compensate for declining fertility under certain circumstances. We assess the theoretical implications by investigating panel data for 118 countries over the period 1980 to 2005 and show that behavioral changes partly mitigate the negative impact of declining fertility on effective labor supply.
