Analysing the alarming European demographic trends: aging populations, shrinking families, dropping fertility rates and mass migration, this title presents the potential ramifications for pensions, health, housing, transport, the family unit and more in over 100 tables and graphs along with a full discussion. From a team led by acclaimed demographer Wolfgang Lutz, this is the culmination of five years of research by the European Observatory on the Social Situation, Demography and Family. Europe's future will be built by its citizens, but who will those citizens be? How numerous, how healthy, how long-lived? How many children will they have? What kind of families will they live in, and what are the main challenges to their social cohesion? These are the questions that "The New Generations of Europeans" sets out to answer. Edited by leading demographers at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), and made up of contributions from respected researchers in the fields of population and society, it assesses what it is to be a citizen of a growing EU and what important issues will have to be faced if Europe as a collective notion is to survive. Taking in fertility, family, ageing, health, immigration and more, and always considering the situation in, and impact of, the new member states, the book draws on the latest in demographic, economic and social research to provide an intriguing coverage of the state of the people of Europe today and tomorrow. Crucially, the question of how changes in this state will impact the socio-economic infrastructure (e.g. medical facilities, transport, food provision, etc.) is also addressed.
