Child and Adolescent Development
How do child and adolescent development affect later life outcomes in diverse populations in Europe?
How is child and adolescent development integrated in population studies?
There is a booming research interest in infant development, and population scholars show a growing interest in this topic. This is fostered by both empirical and theoretical innovations in the frontiers between different disciplines traditionally interested in childhood and adolescence.
The aim of this group is to foster research on child and adolescent development from a demographic perspective, while also stimulating interdisciplinary collaboration on the topic. It also aims at promoting the use of existing sources of data produced by demographers and non-demographers conducting empirical research in this field, and upscaling the contributions of demography vis à vis the research agenda of scholars actively contributing to the field from neighboring disciplines.
This working group organizes online seminars every 2 to 3 months, in which for example the availability and use of innovative data sources for children and adolescents in demographic research, such as admin data or longitudinal datasets, are discussed. Also, this group is actively collaborating with Population Europe and working group members participate in policy advice meetings.
