Joint KNOMAD-UN Population Division Seminar on the role of Migration in Population Modeling
When : Apr 29, 2014 Location : New York Applicable Countries: United States
The aging of industrial countries and the relatively young populations of many developing countries will generate substantial pressures for international migration over the coming years. At the same time, migration can have an important impact on demographic variables (for good and ill), including fertility, child mortality, and the spread of infectious diseases. More research and information sharing on the interaction between demography and migration would help policymakers respond effectively to the pressures that are likely to emerge, especially regarding immigration control in destination countries, and health, education and skills training systems in countries of origin.
