• Covers pressing topics of our time, such as migration, population aging, employment,
health, and economic growth

of graduate and postgraduate courses
• Treats both theoretical and empirical aspects
• Written by leading scholars in the field, employing the latest research

Research on population economics deals with some of the most pertinent issues of
our time and, as such, is of interest to academics and policymakers alike. Like the
Journal of Population Economics, the book series “Population Economics” addresses a
wide range of theoretical and empirical topics related to all areas of the economics of
population, household, and human resources. Books in the series comprise work that
closely examines special topics related to population economics, incorporating the most
recent developments in the field and the latest research methodologies. Micro-level
investigations include topics related to individual, household or family behavior, such as
migration, aging, household formation, marriage, divorce, fertility choices, labor supply,
health, and risky behavior. Macro-level inquiries examine topics such as economic growth
with exogenous or endogenous population evolution, population policy, savings and
pensions, social security, housing, and healthcare. These and other topics related to the
relationship between population dynamics and public choice, economic approaches
to human biology, and the impact of population on income and wealth distributions
have important individual, social, and institutional consequences, and their scientific
examination informs both economic theory and public policy.
