Centre for Population Change (Transition funding)

Lead Research Organisation: University of Southampton
Department Name: Sch of Economic, Social & Political Sci

Abstract

Building on the achievements and key findings from the past eight years of CPC, the scientific programme during the transition funding period consists of a set of projects that consolidate and extend that research, providing an opportunity to follow-up on new avenues of enquiry suggested by our prior work and to response to advances in the field generated by CPC and elsewhere. The scientific agenda also lays the foundation for an anticipated bid for full Centre funding i.e. for CPC-III, retaining key research staff and, importantly the Administrative and KE Hub. The innovative research within CPC-II has, and will continue to, generate exciting and novel findings. Maximising the impact of these, both within the scientific community and wider economic and societal impact will therefore be a core activity during transition.

Our research will continue to be organised around the five thematic areas of:
1. Fertility and family change
2. Increasing longevity and the changing life course
3. New mobilities and migration
4. Understanding intergenerational relations & exchange
5. Integrated demographic estimation and forecasting

These thematic areas explicitly recognise the dynamic interaction of the individual components of population change both with each other and with economic and social processes. The first three themes reflect the three main components of population change: fertility, mortality and migration.
Understanding how trends such as the ageing of the population, changes in family formation and dissolution and increased mobility (spatial, economic and social) are both shaped by and in turn shape international relations and flows of support is essential for assessing the role of the family beyond the household and for debates around intergenerational solidarity and justice. Finally, one of the most notable successes of CPC has been in the area of innovative methods and modelling, and we will continue to work at the cutting edge of developments in demographic modelling, collaborating closely with ONS and other national statistical agencies.

CPC will continue its contribution to three areas identified by the ESRC as of key importance: the design of academic research with a consideration for its policy implications and a high impact on the wellbeing of persons in society; the incorporation of a significant capacity-building element in the research programme with the training of emerging social scientists in the multi-disciplinary area of population change; and the exploitation of existing and newly-available sources of quantitative data, some of which are core ESRC investments. Continued engagement with our partners ONS and NRS and other users will ensure our research remains timely and relevant.

Planned Impact

All CPC's research activities aim to have both academic and societal impact, with our results being used by policy makers and practitioners. The beneficiaries of CPC research are numerous, with CPC research having direct and indirect benefits for the whole of society. With this in mind, we have identified the following key beneficiaries:

The research community - this includes the disciplines of demography, economics, geography, gerontology, sociology, social policy and social statistics, and extends to inter-disciplinary and international comparative research. We maintain a strong presence in the research community through participating in conferences, workshops etc. to disseminate and receive research, build networks and utilise opportunities to progress research and contribute to future agenda setting. Over the past decade CPC has established itself as the 'go-to' place for research on UK demography and is a partner of choice for international collaborative bids; going forward, we aim to maintain and extend this reputation.

ONS and NRS - partnering with these national bodies ensures CPC's agenda is both informed by and informs the user community.

The ESRC - CPC research benefits the ESRC by supporting its agenda of independent, high quality research which has an impact on business, the public sector and the third sector. CPC research and its dissemination also raises the profile of ESRC as a funding body.

Other Government departments - through dialogue with Chief Scientific Advisors, tailored briefing papers, tailored seminars/ sessions to other senior level staff, the provision of evidence to Select Committees as well as more general dissemination workshops, CPC aims for its research to continue to be relevant and highly beneficial to a range of Government departments, including DWP, BEIS, DCLG, DE, DoH and DfID.

Local authorities - CPC research benefits LAs in providing research findings on migration patterns, employment, fertility trends and the needs of an ageing population, supporting local planning and forecasting service needs and requirements. CPC have recently collaborated with the GLA and LGA.

Third sector organisations - CPC expects to continue its collaborative work with organisations such as JRF, Nuffield Foundation, Age UK, ILC UK, the Resolution Foundation and Population Europe. Working in collaboration strengthens the impact of the research and resulting messages for getting it into the relevant consciousness.

Professional associations - CPC collaborates with and benefits relevant professional associations by supplying research findings and participating in events to further discussion through their forums of debate: conferences, technical meetings, networking events, policy statements, and magazines or journals.

Members of the public - a key goal of CPC is to improve public understanding of population change and to improve 'demographic literacy'; this is especially relevant in a post Brexit UK. This is supported both directly through members of the public gaining an interest in population change through public engagement events. Working with schools, CPC aims to inspire a new generation of researchers, bringing the issues surrounding population change to the attention to the next generation of voters. CPC also expects its research to indirectly benefit the general public though policy changes that have come about through CPC's engagement with the various users mentioned above.

Media - CPC is now a regular port of call for journalists looking for evidence on population change; our research is beneficial to the media by providing robust scientific evidence to substantiate many topical news stories. Over the past year members of CPC have been interviewed on BBC World Service, Radio 4, News at 10, Newsnight, Channel 4 News and have been quoted in the broadsheets and publications such as the Economist.

Description In the first year of this award ESRC Centre for Population Change research has made significant progress towards meeting the objectives outlined in the original bid.
Our research on 'Fertility and family change' has found that young people's expectations for living together, marriage and parenthood in the UK vary by ethnic group. The work by Berrington found marriage is being foregone by increasing numbers of white British and black Caribbean's despite there being a high level of expectation to marry. Ongoing work is investigating the barriers to marriage.
An increase in cohabitation raises questions about whether living together has the same beneficial effects on health as marriage. New findings from Perelli-Harris et al indicates that once selection and relationship satisfaction are taken into account, there is little difference between marriage and cohabitation. This challenges the assumption that only marriage is beneficial. The work suggests marriage does not lead to higher subjective well-being; instead, cohabitation is a symptom of economic and emotional strain.
Research by Vitali found households where a woman is the sole earner are significantly poorer, shedding doubt on popular depictions of female breadwinners as high-earning. The work points to a social policy need to pay greater attention to female breadwinners.
Research findings from Kulu and Mikolai support the view that separation can have long-term effects on people's housing status. The findings also highlight striking similarities across countries, despite significant differences in welfare systems and housing markets. The results show that people who have separated are much less likely to own a home than those who are married or living together. While many separated men are likely to become homeowners sometime after separation, separated women are likely to move to a socially rented dwelling. Such gender differences persist over time. The findings show the importance of housing policies in providing the most vulnerable groups with secure housing after separation.
Predicting fertility is difficult but vital for a range of planning needs across government and the private sector. Work by Hilton et al on forecasting fertility has compared the performance of a newly developed Bayesian parametric mixture model to the best-performing models identified in previous work over a number of countries. It has shown that mixture models are competitive in terms of minimising prediction errors. Work continues to extend this analysis to additional countries and methods with the aim of improving fertility predictions.
Research on 'Increasing longevity and the changing life course' has focused on inequalities in ageing, in particular inequalities in later-life mental health. Work by Falkingham, Evandrou, Qin and Vlachantoni (2019) found that older people who experienced childhood adversities, a lost relationship and war-related adversities experienced a higher risk of having a new case of depressive symptoms. The study also revealed that women's mental health in later life is more sensitive to earlier life adversities than men's. The work indicates that mental health interventions earlier in life may benefit individuals both contemporaneously and over the longer term, reducing episodes of depression in later life.
In a first on the topic using British data, Vlachantoni et al revealed social participation has a potential protective effect on carers' mental health and subjective well-being. The research finds that carers who do not engage in social participation report lower levels of mental health and control, autonomy, self-realisation and pleasure than those who do. Policy recommendations would be to addresses the three main barriers caregivers report to social participation; time, energy and finance.
Our studies on intergenerational exchange have brought to light that one-third of mid-life individuals are 'sandwiched' between multiple generations, by having at least one parent/ parent-in-law and one grandchild alive. Among them, half are simultaneously supporting both generations. Vlachantoni, Evandrou, Falkingham and Gomez-Leon discovered that caring for grandchildren increases the probability of also supporting one's parents/ parents-in-law, and vice versa. The work highlights that facilitating mid-life men and women in responding to family support demands whilst maintaining paid employment is critical in fostering future intergenerational support.
Work by Graham et el has found the residential separation of age groups is widespread in both urban and rural areas, in London and elsewhere and is most pronounced in areas where housing is least affordable. The level of residential age segregation between older (65+) and younger (25-44) adults increased in the 2000s, following an already upward trend in the 1990s. The trends raise concerns about potential intergenerational tension. They also have implications for the development of policies designed to promote social cohesion between age groups.
Our work investigating health and immigration (McGhee, Moreh & Vlachantoni) has brought new evidence to light on migrants' attitudes to healthcare. Almost half of migrants in our study would prefer to have medical treatment in their country of origin, rather than the UK. The majority of respondents cited the opinion that the quality of healthcare in their home country was of a higher standard than the UK. The research de-bunks fears that migrants want to take advantage of the NHS.
Work by McGhee et al has also uncovered the attitudes and experiences of Polish nationals in the UK during the Brexit process. The findings suggest that Poles are most worried about their future financial situation, and the feeling of having diminished economic rights as a result of Brexit could lead to new social divisions opening up in the UK. For policy-makers, being aware of the emotional factors posed by Brexit will be vital to achieving social cohesion post-Brexit. It is recommended that they devise policies that reinforce a sense of community.
Findings from the CPC-ONS-UUK Survey of Graduating International Students (Falkingham, Giulietti, Wahba and Wang) show that the majority of international students stick to migration plans made before graduation. Nearly 9 out of 10 students who, before graduating, said that they intended to leave the UK immediately after graduation, actually left the country. However, even though the UK is still seen as a good place to study, there is also a clear indication that the prospects of Brexit made the sample of students think that the UK is a less attractive place to live and work for non-UK nationals. Research by McCollum has recommended that policies need to protect the important economic, demographic and cultural benefits of international students and provide stronger evidence to inform immigration policy. Work continues on understanding students' preferences and experiences, and the effect of migration policy announcements on students' preferences to remain in the UK (McCollum, Kulu, Prazeres, Falkingham, Giulietti, Wahba & Wang).
In 'Integrated demographic estimation and forecasting', Hilton, Dodd, Forster and Smith have developed a model that jointly estimates frontier mortality as well mortality rates for individual countries. This innovative research utilises knowledge about 'frontier mortality', that is data from the country with the lowest mortality rates in a given year, to forecast future mortality. These estimates of frontier mortality and the extent of particular country deviations from this standard provide useful benchmarking information to public bodies who are able to understand how far their figures are away from the 'best achieved' figure in any given year. The findings suggest that the frontier model could potentially be used in forecasting mortality for a large group of countries, particularly by multinational bodies with access to harmonised data from a variety of sources.
Exploitation Route Findings from the portfolio of projects carried out by the ESRC Centre for Population Change have a broad range of uses, primarily by public bodies, policy officials, planners, actuaries, social services, healthcare providers, education providers, and NGOs supporting families, older people and migrant groups.

Description The Centre for Population Change remains committed to ensuring academic, societal, public policy and capacity building impacts throughout transition funding. During the first year of this transition funding grant CPC has made the following impacts; 1) Influenced the UK's measurement of migration for study purposes Our collaborative research with the Office for National Statistics and Universities UK on emigration after study influenced the ONS work plan and the use of the International Passenger Survey for estimating emigration figures. Our work on students highlighted broader issues with emigration by reason captured by the IPS and as a result, the IPS figures were downgraded to 'experimental'. ONS is now working with statisticians across Government to improve migration statistics and further developing use of administrative data. 2) Influenced policy debate on tackling intergenerational unfairness Professor Falkingham was specialist adviser to the House of Lords Select Committee on Intergenerational Fairness and Provision. CPC members Professor Athina Vlachantoni and Professor Elspeth Graham submitted evidence to the Committee. The report of the Committee made recommendations to the Government on ways to tackle the increasing unfairness opening up between generations in the UK. The policy implications of the report are being considered across all government and planning bodies to strengthen intergenerational ties and improve wellbeing across generations. As a result of the report the Office for National Statistics are developing a new generational breakdown of the Effects of Taxes and Benefits on Household Income (ETB) data. The Wealth and Assets Survey (WAS) introduced new breakdowns of wealth by both age group and birth cohort from 2019. In addition, ONS are publishing new analysis on intergenerational transfers, inheritances, gifts and loans.

Results and Impact This seminar was organised by the Centre for Population Change, the Centre for Ageing and the China Research Centre. Prof Yang Chenggang from Southwestern University of Finance and Economics in Chengdu gave a talk entitlted, "Population aging and sustainable economic groth in China'."China's past rapid economic growth has been praised by the whole world. It has also attracted attention whether China can continue to maintain rapid economic growth in the future, and whether it can cross the middle income trap. There are various disputes and even worries about this issue in China. Some of the reasons for anxiety are derived from China's population problems, such as the decreasing of the demographic dividend and the growing aging population.
The impact of population aging: The exploration mainly focuses on two major problems: (1) From the perspective of production, is the elderly population still productive? can it contribute to China's future economic growth? (2) From consumption and from the perspective of support, can the Chinese economy bear the burden of increasing old-age support?
The final conclusion: Although China's economy is severely challenged by the ageing of population, we can still maintain a positive and optimistic attitude towards the future development of China. Based on the family culture and intergenerational support within the Chinese society, it can produce the shadow dividend of the elderly population and it can help to maintain the higher market participation rate of young female working population and thus supports the development of the Chinese economy. At the same time, the level of development and labor productivity that the Chinese economy has achieved has enabled the Chinese economy to withstand the burden of old-age support brought about by the aging of the population. Therefore, we can believe China will keep sustainable economic growth and will successfully cross the middle income trap."

Results and Impact 28/11/2019 - CPC seminar Nicholas Campisi
Two groups of countries have emerged in Europe over the last 20 years. The first group includes countries with very low fertility and the second includes countries with (relatively) high fertility just below the replacement level. Patterns of change are well studied using single-country studies but continental patterns creating these groups is not well understood. This project first examines how local patterns of fertility across 21 European countries contribute to continental trends in 2010, the height of bifurcation. We provide a single framework to examine fertility variation between local areas that accounts for the role of economic, spatial, and social contexts and show that continental patterns of urbanization, economic growth, and sociocultural freedoms are related to fertility variation across space. The project then focuses on recent fertility decline in high-fertility countries. Recent research suggests that converging fertility rates between socioeconomic groups contribute to national-level declines in the Nordic countries. This research examines fertility in Nordic municipalities since 2010 to understand if a convergence across geographies is also contributing to fertility decline and employs spatial modeling to understand what factors are related to spatial trends. We find that variation between geographies is not converging as expected and is diverging in some cases. Results from spatial modeling show that fertility variation is related to economic factors, the structure of the marriage market, and differences in family values between municipalities. Patterns of 'relative importance' are also related to fertility change within municipalities over time, as some factors are more related to fertility in urban places than rural and vice versa. We ultimately contribute a spatial perspective to fertility patterns often studied at the national level but neglected in relevant research and find strong evidence for subnational spatial variation that is related to recent trends in fertility.

Results and Impact Yehuda Baruch from the University of Southampton gave a CPC seminar entitled, 'Career Ecosystem' on 19 September 2019.
"The presentation offers a novel theoretical lens - an ecosystem theory of careers - whereby new forms of institutional work arrangements emerge in response to changes in the environment. Careers and career management have changed significantly in the past generation, and labour markets have become more dynamic, with an overriding demand for flexibility due to the needs and requirements of both organizations and individuals. This meant that the psychological contract, which is the bedrock of work relations, has changed too. The "new normal" is characterized by posts carrying varied obligations and expectations that come in varying work configurations.

The ecosystem theory is applied to careers and labour markets. Labour markets, global labour market included, are presented as an ecosystem (Baruch, 2015; Baruch et al., 2016; Baruch & Rousseau, 2019) where a number of players act and interact with each other. The main thrust of this idea is that of perpetuum mobile-anything and everything are in continuous flux.

The Actors in the system are individuals, institutions and nations. Individuals act, interact and communicate. There is interconnectedness across the actors within different levels of analysis, adding to the complexity. Interactions take place, most notably the exchange of labour for wages, as well as the host of pertinent regulations and laws, such as employment and migration laws at the national level; and policies and strategies at the firm level. In the context of interdependency, different actors bring their needs, expectations, and offer their contributions. Robust ecosystem leads to overall effectiveness whereas fragile ecosystem might diminish."

Results and Impact 25 February 2020 Juho Härkönen from European University Institute, Florence gave CPC seminar on Age at parental separation and children's school outcomes in Sweden: A sibling difference analysis at the University of St Andrews
Parental separation is associated with a host of adverse outcomes, one of which is lower educational performance and attainment. Evidence has accumulated suggesting that part of this association is causal, and recent research has focused on understanding heterogeneity in these effects. The age at which parents separate is one source of such heterogeneity, and previous research has offered inconsistent evidence on whether the effects of parental separation are more or less severe when parents separate when the child is young. In this study, we use a sibling design with population register data from Sweden to analyze the effects of the age of parental separation on children's GPAs at age 15. Non-twin siblings from the same family experience parental separation at different ages, which can be used to identify the effects of variation in age at exposure to parental separation on school outcomes. Our main result is a negative age gradient in the effects of parental separation: the effects of parental separation are the strongest around the ages at which grades are set, and gradually weaken the younger the child was when her parents separated. This result supports the conflict model of parental separation. Additional analyses show that a) children whose parents separated just after the grades were set (placebo test) perform better than those whose parents separated just before the grades were set, but worse than those whose parents separated when the child was young (supporting a "divorce process" perspective), b) regular regression analyses produce the opposite age pattern in the effects (suggesting strong negative selection of parents who separate sooner rather than later), c) sibling fixed effects results are sensitive to error in measuring parental separation, and d) the effects of age at parental separation are heterogeneous. Taken together, our results suggest that in many cases, the children of parents who separate later rather than sooner show worse educational performance.

Results and Impact This presentation is based on three comparative studies, which investigate partnership and family patterns among immigrants and their descendants in selected European countries including the UK. We analyse partnership formation and dissolution, determinants of intermarriage between natives and immigrants, and childbearing patterns among immigrants and their descendants. Using data from seven European countries the studies show, first, a significant diversity in partnership patterns and family forms among immigrants and their descendants within and between the countries. Second, the analyses reveal that partnership and childbearing patterns of the descendants of immigrants are in-between those of immigrants and natives, although they vary across groups and also by the dimensions of family life. Third, the studies show that the country context also matters, i.e. institutional factors shape partnership and childbearing behaviour of ethnic minorities. We discuss the results of the three studies in the light of competing approaches to immigrant integration.

This research investigates the trajectory of cognitive function amongst older people in China over the period of time 2002 to 2014 using the Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey (CLHLS) data. The research investigates the existence of the Flynn effect (ie James Flynn, also referred to as the 'secular rise in IQ scores') with respect to cognitive function of older people. That is, that the cognitive function test scores of older people from younger generations are higher than those older people from older generations. In addition, this research estimates the transition of cognitive function for older people using the method of continuous time homogeneous Markov process. The results provide useful evidence for estimates of the demand for long-term care for older people with dementia in China.

"It is usually neither practical nor ethical to conduct large-scale experiments in public policy with standard methodologies. One alternative for the prior testing of policy options is to use simulation, a prime contemporary example being climate change projections.

A tool - SociaLab - was developed for the counterfactual modelling of public policy drawing on longitudinal data from the New Zealand census and using microsimulation techniques. The seminar will outline the background, construction and counterfactual modelling results from the tool.

SociaLab potentially provides an open-source tool for deliberative inquiry in policy development. It has now been fully written up in Simulating Societal Change, co-authored with Roy Lay-Yee, and published by Springer in the series Computational Social Sciences.

Results and Impact Matthew Wallace from Stockholm University gave CPC seminar on 20 June 2019 at University of St Andrews entitled 'Comparing migrant mortality versus origin: results consistent with selection hypothesis'.

A migrant mortality advantage occurs when international migrants live longer than non-migrants. This phenomenon is well documented, but often only conceptualized and estimated relative to destination populations. Here, we re-conceptualize and re-estimate the advantage relative to origin populations, providing new insight into its patterns and causes. Specifically, we calculate and compare the all-cause mortality and tertiary level educational attainment levels of the thirty-five largest migrant groups in England and Wales to their origin country populations. We use age-sex-origin-specific macro-level data from the Office for National Statistics, Human Mortality Database, United Nations World Population Prospects, and Wittgenstein Center Data Explorer. We find that nearly all migrant groups experience an age-adjusted (20+) mortality advantage-versus-origin and -destination, with variation in the size of the former linked to origin country development level. When we examine specific ages, we find the advantage-versus-origin to be most pronounced at peak migration ages and to diminish thereafter. For tertiary-level educational attainment, migrants were near systematically advantaged over age. Our findings are consistent with selection hypothesis as a pervasive explanation of the migrant mortality advantage. Moreover, we demonstrate the value of estimating the advantage-versus-origin and its potential role as a valuable complement to comparisons between migrants and the destination population.

Results and Impact Daniele Vignoli from University of Florence gave CPC seminar at University of Southampton on 16 May 2019
The increasing speed, dynamics, and volatility of outcomes of globalization makes it increasingly difficult for individuals to predict their future and choose between alternatives and strategies. This generates an unprecedented level of fundamental economic uncertainty, which, we argue, represents the game-changer in contemporary societies and family life courses. So far, the forces of uncertainty have been operationalized through objective indicators of individuals' labor market situation and through their subjective perception. This presentation reviews main macro- and micro-level evidence on the relation between economic uncertainty and fertility. Beside empirical tradition, we argue that fundamental uncertainty needs to be conceptualized and operationalized taking into account that people use works of imagination, producing their own "narrative of the future" - namely, imagined futures embedded in social elements and their interactions. These personal narratives of the future are anchored in existing cultural and institutional frames, as well as public images produced by press and social media. The narratives of the future become potent driving forces of reproductive decisions in spite of uncertainty, irrespective of structural constraints and their subjective perception. The talk ends by offering prospects of research on the topic.

"Annual gains in life expectancy in Scotland have been slower in recent years than in previous decades. Similar trends have been observed in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the USA. This analysis explores the contribution of specific causes of death to mortality by age and cause in the two periods 2000-02 to 2012-14 and 2012-14 to 2015-17.
Life expectancy at birth was calculated from death and population counts available from National Records of Scotland disaggregated by five year age categories and by ICD-10 underlying cause of death. Arriaga's method of life expectancy decomposition was used to produce estimates of the contribution of different age groups and underlying causes of death to life expectancy at birth for each period.
This presentation will explain the results obtained so far, and discuss the plans to extend the analysis to look at the impact of deprivation on life expectancy trends.

Results and Impact Corrado Giulietti, University of Southampton, 4 April 2019
We explore the impact of local-level immigration on the location choices of UK-born residents. Our study aims at investigating three questions: a) does an increase in the inflow rate of immigrants causally lead to a displacement of UK-born residents? b) Does displacement increase segregation within a local authority? c) What are the prevalent mechanisms behind displacement, e.g. economic channels (such as labour market and house prices) or non-economic ones (such as attitudes towards immigrants)? To empirically analyse these questions, we match data from Understanding Society - The UK Household Longitudinal Study with statistics on immigrant inflows in the neighbourhood (middle layer super output area) from the National Insurance number allocations of the Department for Work and Pensions (NINo). The core analysis hinges on panel data fixed effects models.

Results and Impact Katherine Keenan from University of St Andrews gave CPC seminar at University of St Andrews on 30 May 2019.
Increasing postponement and fertility decline in Europe mean that the proportion of children who grow up as only children is increasing, and will likely continue to increase in the coming decades. Recent analysis of Swedish data has found that only children have one of the highest mortality rates of all sibling groups, but the mechanism remains unclear. In this study we attempt to unravel this apparent health disparity using Swedish administrative data which measures health and social outcomes at various stages throughout the life course. We investigate educational and health outcomes in adolescence and early adulthood, and mortality patterns, and attempt to adjust for various confounding factors and selection mechanisms that might account for the relative poorer health of only children. Results are discussed within the context of changing fertility patterns in Europe.

Results and Impact Vegard Skirbekk from Columbia Aging Center gave CPC seminar at University of Southampton on 20 June 2019 entitlted 'Preferences to life expectancy - new findings from international surveys'.

One of the most important changes that have taken place in the history of humanity has been the radical extensions taking place to life expectancy. Yet, in spite of mortality decreases being concentrated at higher and higher ages, there have been few studies on how long people want to live. Why do some people want to live a very long time, while others would rather die relatively young? We provide evidence from unique surveys on preferences to life expectancy based on surveys from a set of different countries. We use data from Germany, the US, Norway, Poland, Russia, Austria and Thailand. We present findings on preferences to the length of life across these countries. We show how these differ by individual risk factors, gender and education. We find that the extent to which the preference to die young or to live somewhat longer or much longer than average life expectancy is related to a person's positive and negative expectations of what their life will be like in old age. Having fewer positive expectations for their own old age distinguishes people who prefer to die relatively young, while having fewer negative expectations distinguishes people who want to live beyond current levels of life expectancy. The results provide evidence that pessimistic expectations of life in old age can undermine the desire to live up to and beyond current average life expectancy.

Results and Impact Nicholas Campisi from University of St Andrews gave CPC seminar on 24 May at the University of Southampton.
"Since 2000, European fertility has split into two distinct groups - countries with high fertility just below replacement level total fertility, and countries with very low fertility. Countries with high fertility include those in the 'Nordic Welfare Regime' that are seen as leaders in fertility trends and forerunners of increased fertility due to their high levels of social democracy. However, since 2010, the Nordic countries have also experienced decreases in fertility that are expected to reduce fertility to levels similar to the low fertility group. Prior research also demonstrates both the persistence and importance of differences between urban fertility and rural fertility; in which urban places with high population density and relatively low fertility lead rural places with low population density and higher fertility in fertility transitions. However, the role of urban places in recent fertility declines is still unclear, especially in light of recent changes to fertility-determinant relationships. The aim of this PhD project is to understand what relationships contribute to modern European fertility patterns and what decreases will mean for future patterns and the goal of replacement level fertility.
This project begins by first analyzing fertility in small geographic units across 21 European countries to assess the relationships between fertility and economic, sociocultural, and spatial determinants. It then continues by focusing on four countries with decreasing fertility - Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden. Results demonstrate persistent patterns of local fertility, despite national-level convergence. Significant relationships between fertility and economic, sociocultural, and spatial factors are demonstrated across Europe, providing direction in light of changing fertility-determinant relationships. Preliminary Nordic analysis demonstrates distinct patterns by country and geography, with two distinct patterns: one of convergence and one of lag.

The aim of this presentation is threefold: 1) To introduce FERTILYtrends - a new ESRC-funded project that will examine the dramatic fluctuations in fertility since the late 1990s, investigate their causes, and develop improved methodologies for fertility forecasting. The project team, based at the Universities of St Andrews and Southampton are working with stakeholder input from the National Records of Scotland, the Northern Ireland Statistical Agency and the Office for National Statistics. 2) Using data from vital registration the talk outlines what is currently known (and not known) about widening country differences in the timing and quantum of fertility. 3) We evaluate one explanation for these cross-national differences - the role of differential international migration in the constituent countries. However, there remain many unanswered questions and the FERTILITYtrends team are keen to reach out to those who may be able to provide further insight.
