Cíle předmětu
This is an introductory course to population studies with a strong practical component: it will help understand the demographic changes in contemporary developed societies (mostly in Europe) and teach some basic tools to describe and analyse these changes. We will discuss the causes and consequences of fertility, mortality and migration trends, population ageing and de-standardisation of family forms. During the lab sessions, you will learn where to look for comparative demographic data and how to compute, visualise and interpret basic demographic indicators. We will do all analyses in Excel.
