Demographic Modelling of Migration and Population: A Multiregional Perspective

28th August 2009 1pm, University of Southampton 58/3017

Andrei Rogers, University of Colorado

This presentation focuses on the development and evolution of migration and population redistribution modelling within the spatial context of multiregional demography. It begins in 1965, when the state-of-the-art consisted largely of ideas and techniques imported from other disciplines (regression analysis, gravity models, Markov chains, and matrix cohort-survival population projection models) and then continues on to tell the story of multiregional demography, its evolution and emergence as a fully developed paradigm for studying the spatial dynamics of migration and population redistribution and, more recently, its approach for estimating the necessary migration input measures from inadequate data.
