Hybrid Conference – Exploring Population Heterogeneities

Wednesday 6 – Thursday 7 December 2023, online and Vienna, Austria


Understanding and analyzing population heterogeneity and its drivers have long been at the heart of demographic analysis. For instance, while inequalities in health and life expectancy across socio-economic groups have been studied since long, their increase over the past decade has turned into a growing concern. In addition to “classical” markers of heterogeneity in individual behavior, such as sex/gender, age, education, urban-rural residence and socio-economic status, there are other important sources of demographic heterogeneity such as spatial, generational, environmental, etc. Their analysis is essential for modeling population developments and projecting them into the future. Equally important is to understand how these heterogeneities arise and evolve, how they are driving and driven by socioeconomic inequality, and the policy challenges they impose for socio-economic development, welfare systems and social cohesion. This conference invites researchers from all social sciences to present work on the causes and consequences of population heterogeneity.

We are pleased to announce our keynote speakers:

Ridhi Kashyap, Nuffield College, University of Oxford
Anna Matysiak, Interdisciplinary Center for Labour Market and Family Dynamics (LabFam), University of Warsaw
