Demography Group

The Demo­graphy Group aims to bet­ter un­der­stand the role of “Hu­man Cap­ital” – the hu­man re­source base in terms of the num­ber of people and their chan­ging struc­ture by age, gender, loca­tion, edu­ca­tion, health status, cog­nit­ive skills and other rel­ev­ant char­ac­ter­ist­ics that help with the pro­duc­tion of hu­man well­being.

The Demo­graphy Group is part of the Wit­tgen­stein Centre for Demo­graphy and Global Hu­man Cap­ital (II­ASA, VID/ÖAW, WU) to­gether with the World Pop­u­la­tion Pro­gram of the In­ter­na­tional In­sti­tute for Ap­plied Sys­tems Ana­lysis (II­ASA) and the Vi­enna In­sti­tute of Demo­graphy of the Aus­trian Academy of Sciences (VID/ÖAW). The Centre was foun­ded in 2010.

This co­oper­a­tion com­bines the part­ners’ strengths in the fields of demo­graphy, hu­man cap­ital form­a­tion and ana­lysis of the re­turns to edu­ca­tion. The aim is to con­sti­tute an in­ter­na­tional lead­ing Centre in the men­tioned fields. [deutsche Über­set­zung]
