Some 50 scientists from Eastern and Western Europe met to discuss concepts, data and methodology, including projections, of household demography, as well as recent household trends. The scientific Program comprised five sessions in which 16 papers were discussed. A selection of the papers was included in: Nico Keilman, Anton Kuijsten et al.
On behalf of the The European Association for Population Studies Working Group on Mortality and Morbidity, and the local organising committee in Rome, we are pleased to announce a workshop on “Individual, area and group variation in morbidity and mortality”, to be held Monday 17th September – Wednesday 19th September 2007.
Anthropological demography asks how population processes and socio-cultural practices affect each other. Demographic models that do not acknowledge the importance of the cultural embedding of behaviour tend to reduce cultural meanings and practices to a list of traits that are added to standard institutional and individual background characteristics. In this representation of culture, behaviour is guided by a system of discrete rules and beliefs into which individuals have been socialised.
